This extension brings OS 8-style "sticky menus" to Mac OS 7.
one afternoon I wrote the original StickyClick, written with PatchWorks in about 3 hours. (Getting it to feel right took most of the time.)
StickyClick patches PostEvent and shunts a mouseUp event from being posted if:
- the mouse is in the menubar, or came from _popupmenuselect
- the mouse hasn’t moved more than ~two pixels from where it went down
- the mouse has been down less than half of doubleclick time.
The effect of this is that if you want to drag around on menus, StickyClick stays nicely out of your way. And if you want to navigate by a single click to initiate the menu selection process, that’s easy too.
