Wheel Event



    Doug: added definitions of roll and rotation

    Doug> added definitions of roll and rotation

    Travis: so MouseWheel is the legacy event

    Doug: there are several different mousewheel events; mouseWheel &
    ... so new event is created: Wheel
    ... but still define the legacy MouseWheel

    Travis: could add some diagram

    <scribe> ACTION: Doug to add a diagram about wheel axes etc
    [recorded in

    <trackbot> Created ACTION-6 - Add a diagram about wheel axes etc [on
    Doug Schepers - due 2008-06-25].

    smaug: problem is that systems produce events with line scroll delta
    and pixel delta

    <Travis> (It's not quite complete, obviously...)



    smaug: scroll event happens after scrolling

    Doug: HTML and CSS should define that if element is capable to
    scroll, scroll should bubble to document

    smaug: the default handling shouldn't bubble to document

    <arve> [not participating, but following by accident] make sure that
    the delta is well-defined both in terms of value and direction,
    browser deviate on both, some send +1 where others send -60

    Travis: wondering about the 2nd paragraph of 1.3

    checkboxes and radiobuttons are special cases

    <shepazu> arve, will do

    <arve> shepazu: my highly personal proposal is to define an angle
    and a distance

    <scribe> ACTION: Doug to clarify default actions (section 1.3)
    [recorded in

    <trackbot> Created ACTION-7 - Clarify default actions (section 1.3)
    [on Doug Schepers - due 2008-06-25].


      [15] http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-forms/current-work/#the-click

    Doug: many things should be defined by the host language
    ... Both HTML and SVG should define click event handling on a link -
    event bubbles, default action is to fire DOMAction ...
    ... back to mousewheel
    ... arve had idea about angle
    ... Who should default the default handling of wheel event?

    smaug: the default handling depends on ctrl, alt keys etc

    Doug: I'll put a note that host language should define the default
    action for the wheel event

    <shepazu> angle could be derived from the distance of deltaX and

    Doug: how often would you actually need angle?

    smaug: wheelevent should expose the type of the scroll units

    Travis: wheelevent should use some common units

    Doug: need to discuss about wheel event on the list

    Travis: should the default action of wheel fire scroll or cause
    scroll ?

    smaug: cause scroll

    which may cause scroll event

    Doug: one can change the default handling of mouse wheel on system;
    how many lines are scrolled
    ... should we actually have wheel event with its own units, like



    Doug: host language defines how to react to rolls
    ... roll is abstract unit

    I lost connection?

    are you there ?

    shepazu: ?

    <shepazu> hey?

    can you hear me?

    <shepazu> call back in, maybe?

    <shepazu> no


    "The conference is restricted at this time"

    can't call in

    <shepazu> sigh

    <shepazu> maybe we should continue on email


    <shepazu> and wiki

    but check that video, if you haven't

    it shows the basic problem

    well, one of them
