up and down button event codes
I may have mentioned this before by e-mail, but it would be really nice if the event code in a WMSetVariableAction record would report whether the up or down button was clicked for a numeric SetVariable. I like to use these buttons for controlling gains or stepping through a list of waves. Gains have variable step values (e.g. 100 goes up to 200, but down to 50), and lists of waves may be missing entries. Therefore, knowing which direction the user wants to go is relevant, rather than the ending value. I have come up with various kluges (storing the old value and doing the comparison, using separate plus and minus buttons), but an event code would be much nicer. I noticed that the direction of a mousewheel turn is available, but only if the built-in arrows are disabled (by having increment of 0). That isn't as nice from a user-interface point of view. Thanks for considering this!
