MCAmiga 0.4

Posted by ALB42 on 15. Mai 20203 Comments

Worked a little bit on the mouse control for MCAmiga, the mouse/video unit combination makes it very easy, exactly the same mechanisms than the keyboard events. So now you can also use the mouse to click on buttons or select files. The search and jump function was already included in the last version but I did not show them in a video, so I included them here.

The second part was to activate app window functionality, that you can drag and drop a file onto one of the two panels and the program will automatically jump to that directory and file. I did give me some headache though, because initially it did not work on Classic Amiga and MorphOS, and I found out that the FreePascal workbench unit had a big bug. The syscall offset of the needed Function AddAppWindowA was wrong. Now thats fixed as well.

Download as always for all Amiga systems on the programs page.

    Really cool, thanks!
    I noticed the right shift key is ignored, at least with MorphOS.

      seems nothing I can do about that, it’s MorphOS doing something strange.
      example: go to Scribble and define a shortcut select „sample“ (to press buttons you want to use) and try „left shift + F9“ which works fine and try „right shift + f9“ rshift appears but the F9 key never shows up. And this is what I also see in the intuition messages. the Shift Fn keys does not send a special message, just a general one. Sorry.
