Tip of the Day – Mouse wheel scrolling on the mac

A friend of mine asked me yesterday if I would take a look at a Flex application that he was writing. I said, “of course!”, and pulled up his app in my browser. To my surprise, I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to navigate through his application.

So I called him back as asked him. He told me that his app uses the mouse wheel quite a bit to navigate around, he thought it would be very intuitive. I guess not everyone knows that mouse wheel scroll events don’t register on the mac.

So today I’m letting everyone within the sound of my blog know that…

Mouse wheel scrolling does not work on Macs… natively!

Luckily for us, Ali Rantakari has created a solution for this very problem. You can read up about the solution in this post.
