Well, this makes it more clear what problem you are facing.  I haven't had to deal with it,
maybe someone else has.  First thing I would try is setting up a listener in the HTML/JS wrapper
to see if you can get the event there.

Subject: Re: Urgent Request. Scorlling MAC OS

Thank you Alex. It's just that we've been using Flex for for the past 4 years and fortunately
for us we've managed without bothering anyone on the mailing list... The first question I
ever post, i get no response.

I will use the mailing list and will try being more explicit onwards.

Anyway, I did some more digging and i found threads related to my issue... Might help shed
some light.

AIR applications and Flash ignore horizontal scrolling in OS X.
In OS X, there is system-wide support for multidirectional (horizontal and vertical) scrolling.
On laptops, this is accessed by moving two fingers together on the touchpad. On any mac, this
is accessible through the 2-dimensional scroll ball on the mighty mouse. Flash/AIR recognizes
the vertical component of this motion just fine, but completely ignores the horizontal component,
even when interacting with a UI element that has both a horizontal and a vertical scroll bar
Bug Base

PS: This is extremely important for us as we have a calendar implemented with s:DataGrid it
has over 50 columns. On Mac users are not being able to scroll horizontally by swiping two
fingers right or left on the touch pad. Instead it's taking them away from the page. This
behavior works fine on other html websites.

I'm open for any suggestion or a practical workarounds.

Thanks Again.

Kind Regards,

Hi Ronny,

Please continue to use the mailing lists.  If you didn't get a response the first time,  mention
that in your post.  It isn't clear to me from the description what your expected behavior
is so it might help to be more explicit.  I have a 3-year old mac and it doesn't have an explicit
track, and I'm not sure what side-scrolling means or what "glitchy" is.   If you can post
a simple test case that can help.  Or you can file a JIRA issue and put the details in there
and point people to it.

Subject: Urgent Request. Scorlling MAC OS

Hi Alex,

Sorry for sending you a personal message but i'm desperate. I tried sending to flex-users
but no reply.

One of my clients is going mad because we have a huge datagrid and the track is not working
properly on MAC OS. Side scrolling is impossible and scrolling is glitchy.

We're using the latest Flash Version with latest Apache SDK 4.11 on the latest MAC OS on Google

I checked the Jira Flex Issues and the only open issue was related to the TextArea Scrolling.

  1.  Apache Flex<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX>
  2.  FLEX-23515<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-23515>

I would greatly appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction, or in case it
is a know flash issue, are there any JS alternative solution i could work with ?

Thank you vey much.

Kind Regards,

Ronny Shibley, Eng
