hi, pretty simple question. does anyone know how to detect a mouse wheel up / down event? id like to know how to get it directly if thats possible, ie not while polling for input. cant find any info for this on the docs, im not sure if it even exist's. thanks for any help.

Hiya, you will use the SDL_MouseButtonEvent. In addition to the

SDL_BUTTON_LEFT, SDL_BUTTON_MIDDLE, SDL_BUTTON_RIGHT

flags you can also use

SDL_BUTTON_WHEELUP, SDL_BUTTON_WHEELDOWN

Hope that helps.
