Mouse buttons 4 & 5 for navigation

as is the case with browsers back/forward functions, Xnview allows the use of mouse buttons 4 & 5 to navigate between next & previous images
In XnviewMP it doesn't work, I'd like that functionality to be restored if that's possible.
thanks for reading.

De la même façon que pour les navigateurs, avec les fonctions précédent/suivant, Xnview permet l'utilisation des boutons 4 & 5 d'une souris pour naviguer entre les images suivantes & précédentes.
Dans XnviewMP cela ne fonctionne pas, j'aimerais que cette fonctionnalité sois restaurée si cela est possible.
merci d'avance.


PS: After some more thinking, I think I posted this in the wrong category , therefore I "moved" it there, (delete & recreate).

I know this thread is old, but I have found a solution in a small autohotkey script I wrote. For anyone who doesn't know about autohotkey, it is very easy to use.

Create a new autohotkey script, then right click it & edit the script. Paste the following 3 lines at the bottom and save. Then double click on the file.

Code: Select all

#IfWinActive ahk_class XmainClass 
XButton1::PostMessage, 0x111, 335, 0, , XnView
XButton2::PostMessage, 0x111, 336, 0, , XnView

That is all. Please let me know if this helps you.

You can download autohotkey from http://www.autohotkey.com/download/ - the first link for autohotkey_L is fine.

awesome !
I already use autohotkey in fact
never thought about combining it with Xnview though

so thanks a lot, (although I really hope this gets implemented directly in xnviewmp at some point in time)

I think that the button 4 and 5 of the mouse should be more used to navigate like the buttons Back - Forward of XnViewMP.
Is it possible to make it possible?

I just tried this out in XnView MP 0.84 with a Logitech M510 on Windows 10:
In Image view mode and button 4 (=Previous image) and button 5 (=Next image) work for me like a charm. Same applies for scroll wheel left (=Previous image)/right (=Next image).

Do I get something wrong? Don't the buttons 4 & 5 work for you?

@whismerhill:

Try X-Mouse Button Control

It's an excellent free program for mouse buttons customization.
Allows to use different buttons settings for different applications.

Yes, in Viewer mode, for me too, it works perfectly as previous/next file.
What I am saying is that in Browser mode, the previous/next file don't have sense. Then I propose that in Browser mode the button 4 &5 of the mouse get the same function that they have in the most cases in other software: Back - Forward in the navigation.

And the best solution could be the possibility to select the function (here a simulation):

Thanks whismerhill for the X-Mouse Button Control, I will try it.

Ah, now I fiinally understood what you mean: In XnView browser buttons 4 / 5 are assigned to back/forward in the history of browsed directories (and not previous/next image in the current folder). This makes much sense.

Notes:
- From what I can see, currently mouse buttons 4 & 5 do nothing in browser mode.
- Does Previous/Next file in XnView browser make sense at all?

No, Previous/Next file in XnView browser mode don't make sense at all. In view mode, yes, but not in browser mode.
Therefore, is better assign them the back/forward function in the history of browsed directories. (As you better said)
Thank you :D
