 Fast click and drag (zoom) command being interpreted as a click (repeat) command......

    Fast click and drag (zoom) command being interpreted as a click (repeat) command...... Reply

    In my current setup I use right click and drag for zooming in.  I hold the right mouse button and drag to draw a box and when I release the mouse I will zoom into the box I have created.  

    I am noticing that if I execute a very fast zoom box, cadence will interpret my drag as a right mouse click and therefore execute my right mouse click command rather than my right mouse click drag command.  In my current setup right click executes a repeat command (cadence default in our installation).

    I would like to remove the right click cadence default bindkey in hopes that Cadence will not interpret my click, drag and release as a right click rather my intended click, drag and release.  

    I did the same thing in Cadence 6.x and no matter how fast I was able to click and drag it never interpreted my click and drag as a plain click and release.  
     
    There seems to be a time sensitivity to whether a click and release is a click or drag command.  I can move the mouse rather far in the short time that is still inside the "click" time window.  

    Is there a cdsenv variable that sets up click time?

    Hi Clint,

    Yes there is an environment variable to control the double-click time:

    ui  dblClkTime     int     200

    Double Click Time is given in milliseconds. 200 ms is 1/5th of a second. If the program receives a second mouse click in the window of time defined by Double Click Time, the action is taken as a double-click.

    This is also controlled from the UI under Options -> User Preferences, Double Click Time (a slider controls the value) .

    Hopefully this is what you are looking for?

    Regards,

    Lawrence.

     Unintuitively that works, I saw that option but did not try it since I was not doing a double click.  THANKS FOR THE TIP!!!!

    Thanks for pointing me towards that, looks like I am not alone.  Thankfully the double click time worked.
