Display the Toolbar using mouse only
« on: July 10, 2014, 03:42:31 PM »
So is it possible to use the mouse (only) to bring up the taskbar.  Like a long hold on the mouse, or pressing both the right and left mouse buttons together?

im not 100% sure what you are asking..

if you mean when an LBC bar is minimized to the tray you can click on the tray..

but maybe you mean bringing it up as a menu under the cursor? or?

So here is what I wanted to do, and here is what I did to "fix" it...

I want to be able to click the middle button on my mouse (in my case a "clickable" roller wheel) to bring up my toolbar.  My Hot Key trigger for the node I'm focusing on is Ctrl + Left Arrow.  LaunchBar Commander does not have this built-in, so I user AutoHotKey to accomplish this. 

I'n the master AutoHotKey script that I keep almost everything in, I added the following entry:

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. ;  Used to callup Launchbar Commander
  2. MButton::
  3. Send ^{Left}

So now when the middle mouse button (MButton) is clicked, it "sends" the control + Left arrow key!

My Control + Left arrow key still works, but now I have a new way to get to my menu .

Hope this helps clarify... André
