Good day,

I've reviewed this livecode lesson: ... chitecture

I'm currently using this, however if the user selects a pop-up menu it will keep scrolling to the mouseloc. How do I stop the scrolling if the user selects a pop-up menu?

That lesson needs to be updated, it's 7 years out of date and much has changed since then. You no longer need to set the compositor, tilesize, etc. and it isn't necessary to track mouseMove to determine the scroll.

I'm not at my computer right now but maybe someone here can post an example of the newer method. Once you implement that, the problem may go away, or you can block it if you need to.
