ControllerMate (part 7 of 14). Putting things together: Single-Click, Double-Click, Two Buttons… Had enough yet?
Note: this is not a substitute for the original and most excellent ControllerMate tutorial. I am endeavoring to save some time for those who have read it and now are eager to get things done.
Important: I strongly recommend that for the duration of this adventure you find and connect an extra mouse to your Mac – that way even if you mis-configure your target device you will still have full control.
Let’s put together the glorious results of our recent exercises!
The four actions in this diagram are initiated as follows:
1) Clicking Button #3 plays the Frog tune
2) Double-clicking button #3 plays the Funk tune
3) Clicking buttons #1 and #2 simultaneously plays the Glass tune
4) Clicking buttons #1 and #3 simultaneously plays the Elephant tune
I used the double-buttons to call upon Zooom/2 and move/resize the window without having to reach for the corner. I am sure you can think of even better uses 😉
Speaking of better uses… they would call for more tricks, won’t they? Next I will use one of the mouse buttons as a modifier, like Shift or Alt on your keyboard.
