    Scrolling through long song? codeable?

    So, with my first problem tackled (thanks to Blue ZX3) I now have the following problem...
    I listen to dj-mixes a lot... sometimes I wish to go to a part of the mix which I think is best... e.g. in winamp you click and hold the 'forward' button and it jumps per 5 seconds forward untill you release the button...
    The problem is, when using my touchscreen, I touch and hold the 'forward' button in Roadrunner (not winamp), yet, it only jumps forward 3 or 4 times 5 seconds and then just continues playing... So I have to touch it again to continue fast-forwarding... That's quite time consuming if you want 10 minutes to pass...
    At the moment I'm writing this, I start thinking this is rather a problem with my touchscreen and not RR... anyone any suggestions on what it could be exactly?
    Further more, when I use the slide bar, and in stead of clicking at the desired spot, I want to drag the slider, that red dot appears... Is there any possibility to get rid of it?
    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the heads up...
    I already tried the search button, I'm a regular on a lot of forums, but I assume I missed some key words then...
    And reading, I have no problem with that, but the board is so big, it's kind of hard to figure out where to start...
    Then again, it won't hurt... I'll give it another go...

    This is actually nothing to do with RR, it's your TOUCHSCREEN!!! It doesn't mean it's not working right, in fact it's merely a setting to emulate the Right Button Mouse click by pressing and holding on the touchscreen -- you should disable that option in your touchscreen utility settings and it should work just fine after that. For the Sliders, Disable Gestures as described, or simply click DIRECTLY where you want it to go to.

    Thanks Guino, let me start with saying you've made a beautiful program and I'm just starting to get to know it...
    Well, While typing I was indeed doubting if it wasn't just my TS...
    I'm at work now so I can't test it right now, but with you confirming my thoughts I'm sure it'll be solved... It does however mean I'll lose my rightclick option, but thenagain, I won't need it when using RoadRunner
    And the Red-Dot thing, I've eventually found a post about it... That's solved too
    Thanks all!

    Just to confirm, these problems are solved
    You were right Guina, it was the right-click option of the TS and the red dot has vanished

    You can also create a slider/jump to bar n your skin. Here is a screen cap of how I did it in my skin:


    You can tap anywhere on the bar to jump to the songs position. The center label shows the current time in the song, the one on the right shows the total track time.

    This would definitely be a better way to go, especially with songs in excess f an hour.
