IDEA - new option for DragLock?
« on: December 11, 2010, 04:34 PM »
I am a new visitor to the site and like the DragLock program. I am wondering if it can be written so instead of working while the Windows key is depressed, locking a specified axis is activated by one hotkey and remains locked until a second hotkey is pressed? What I notice with the current code is that a certain amount of wiggle is permitted. draglock wiggle.jpg

Welcome to the site mastersesci  :Thmbsup:

That sounds like a good idea..

Skrommel, the DragLock author, has been pretty busy lately, but maybe someone else could modify the code.

Here's the original DragLock thread: http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=14009.0

Hi mastersesci :up:
I requested the idea and I still use it regularly :)

Your idea would certainly resolve any initial confusion of direction -I find it's unsure initially of where you want to go. Once it has locked on the direction you're heading I find it rock solid. The mouse arrow(or whatever) will flicker - but the line of movement doesnt in my experience. (I can test it by drawing a freehand line while using it - I dont fully understand your image btw - was the down [y] line drawn while also using draglock?)
