#5248 closed Bug (fixed)

Scroll wheel volume acting differently depending on location of cursor (Windows 10 (9926))

Reported by: Farfie Owned by: kasper93
Priority: lowest Milestone: 1.7.10
Component: User Interface Version: nightly, specify
Severity: trivial Keywords:, scroll, volume, windows10
Cc: Evaluation: need info


I know I know, Windows 10 is very backburner. Lowest priority and trivial severity because it's a small bug even then...

This all occurs whether MPC-HC is the active window or not:
When the cursor is above the seekbar (video portion of the window, menu buttons, even titlebar), the volume changes as expected when the scroll wheel is used.
When the cursor is anywhere below the seekbar, the volume does not change at all (aka the mouse wheel does nothing), with one exception (the interesting part):
If the cursor is over the volume bar itself, in the bottom right below the seekbar, scroll wheel volume changing is inverted (aka, scrolling up decreases volume and vice versa). Also interesting to note is that while like this, scrolling moves much slower, as if also ignoring the scroll speed settings applied system wide under control panel? Dunno.

If the bug is specific to Windows 10 maybe this should be reported to Microsoft? Have you noticed similar behavior with other apps?

Mouse cursor behavior has been changed in Windows 10. And this isn't a bug, but design decision. Mouse events are captured by the window that the cursor is currently hovered on instead of the selected window.

Right now we should wait for final Windows build. And then we can discuss what we should change in MPC-HC to adjust its behavior to the new system. It is unlikely they change this particular thing, but there is no need to hurry.

Gah sorry, this ended up in my spam folder.

I have not noticed this with any other application I use (volume slider on Foobar works fine, and all sliders on Teamspeak work fine as well).
Version is (x86).

In 19e47d:

Mouse: Adjust mouse behavior for Windows 10.

Mouse messages are dispatched to the focused window first, but if it
isn't interested message will be dispatched to the root window instead.

Closes #5248
