    I need help with an Applescript.

    Today I bought I oneclick-mouse. To simplify scrolling I want to write an applescript.

    Ideally this script uses the mouse to scroll like when dragging the scrollbar. But instead of clicking on the scrollbar, I would to activate scrolling by pressing two buttons like Control and Shift simultaneously.

    Like this you could work with your mouse on the screen, clicking links etc. and just hold two buttons down and start smooth scrolling, without having to resort to the scrollbar or the trackpad.

    Any help is superappreciated.

    That would be really cool if you could get it to work. Although might not be worth the effort as you can get a mouse with a scroll wheel for $20. I suppose it just depends on your situation.

    I assume you mean a one-button mouse? ;)

    If you have a trackpad (sounds like you do) then go get iScroll 2 for the best damned scrolling.. uh... thingamagij ever. Seriously.

    Or use the arrow keys to scroll in Safari, or press the space bar. But honestly, I like scrolling with the trackpad than anything-- even a scroll wheel because with the trackpad, you can use two fingers and right-click. Try it. It is really freakin' cool.

    Thanks, I bought a bluetooth Onebutton mouse for $50 today, after years of using a multibutton-mouse with a scrollwheel.

    Right now I'm using SideTrack. The reason I posted here was that I want to use the mouse for scrolling, not the Trackpad, since it provides far easier input-possibilities for scrolling.

    I'm neither interested in right-clicking right now, nor in button pressing.

    What I wanted was advice on how to set up the described AppleScript to try my innovative idea of scrolling.

    Well, good luck with that.

    The iScroll driver is nicer that SideTrack because you can use your fingers anywhere on the trackpad, not just on the side or bottom. But if you don't want to, then oh well. I don't know how to do what you are asking, sorry.
