CodeEditorComponent - highlight text left-click and mouse-wheel?


#1

Left-clicking and scrolling with the mouse wheel is an established norm when it comes to highlighting text, is this currently unsupported or am I missing something? 

p.s. tested with JuceDemo, latest tip, Ubuntu LTS 14.04

Is it?

Never heard of that before, and it doesn't seem to do anything in any of my other text editors!

What supports this:

  • Notepad
  • Notepad++
  • Visual Studio (scroll with a mouse move event)
  • WordPad
  • Google Docs (Chrome on Windows. Didn't test in other browsers and OS)
  • Xcode
  • AppCode (scroll with a mouse move event)
  • TextEdit  (scroll with a mouse move event)
  • Sublime Text

Oh, I thought you meant it did some kind of special behaviour rather than just letting you scroll at the same time as drag. Had no idea that didn't work, but seems like something that could be easily sorted out!
