quick ahk idea: resize window with mouse click and scroll wheel
« on: September 25, 2008, 06:42:02 AM »
a simple idea (that might be already covered by a small util).

hold the left mouse button down and scroll the mouse wheel to make the current window taller.

hold the right mouse button down and scroll the mouse wheel to make the current window wider.

maybe hold both left and right buttons down and scroll to make the window larger in all directions.

(not thought about this for more than a few seconds so maybe those actions would conflict with other things.)

nudone, just gave a quick try on this one so please assume this as a beta script. :) based on the direction & mouse button, the scroll wheel shrinks or stretches the window. for smoother transition, edit the .ahk & change the 'NotchMove' value (see pic).

also, i can't get 'hold both buttons' thing to work so i switched the scroll wheel to be used with either 'Control' on the keyboard or the 'Back' button on the mouse (XButton1 in AHK-speak).

briefly the hot-keys:
LMB + Scroll Wheel -> Vertical
RMB + Scroll Wheel -> Horizontal
Control + Scroll Wheel -> Incremental
XButton1 + Scroll Wheel -> Incremental

Volumouse can do something similar through the MoveResize Plugin.
