Trying further, it looks like this can vary according to your setup. I|
plugged my Mac's mouse into my Vista machine, and horizontal scrolling works
there in Notepad, but does not work in eclipse or stand-alone IE. So I
think I have a case that's similar to the original question. However its
failure to work in IE makes me think that it's a problem in the OS (eg.-
mouse driver needed? mouse configuration needed?). Native widgets should
just work if the OS support is working properly. I would suggest seeing if
horizontal scrollwheel support works in other apps on your machine (eg- IE,
others...), and if not then investigate if something mouse-related is not
set up right in the OS.
When I mentioned horizontal scrollwheel support in 3.6 I was mistakenly
thinking that StyledText was responding to MouseWheel events, but I now see
that it's just listening to the scrollbars, and when horizontal scrolling is
working the OS scrolls the scrollbar and the StyledText is notified. So
this case should also work in eclipse versions older than the 3.6 stream if
the OS support is working properly.
