Is it possible to disable secondary button for some applications?

I need it to have more gestures only for video players bot not for other things

You can handle that via script in the Global Actions > Window Events > Foreground Window Change tab.

Something like this:
Code:
//If Chrome, set secondary stroke button to middle, otherwise disable secondary stroke button
if(sp.ForegroundWindow().Title.indexOf("- Google Chrome") > -1) {
    sp_config.SecondaryStrokeButton = MouseButtons.Middle;
} else {
    sp_config.SecondaryStrokeButton = MouseButtons.None;
}

This was just an example, you'd need to make updates as needed to handle each of the applications you want to allow the secondary stroke button for.

This script is just looking for the existence of a partial string match in the foreground window's title. You could use that (combining multiple strings to match), or EXE names.

You can call this when the window is active to get the full title, but you would usually just want to match on a non-variable part of the title so it doesn't fail to match if the caption changes a little (like an active document, etc.)

sp.MessageBox(sp.ForegroundWindow().Title, "Foreground Window Title");

This will get the EXE name of the foreground window:

sp.ForegroundWindow().Process.MainModule.ModuleName

For example:
Code:
//If Chrome or Notepad++ is the foreground (active) window, 
//enable middle mouse as secondary stroke button, otherwise disable secondary
if(sp.ForegroundWindow().Process.MainModule.ModuleName == "chrome.exe" 
   || sp.ForegroundWindow().Process.MainModule.ModuleName == "notepad++.exe"){
    sp_config.SecondaryStrokeButton = MouseButtons.Middle;
} else {
    sp_config.SecondaryStrokeButton = MouseButtons.None;
}

This works fine for me:
Code:
try
{
    if(sp.ForegroundWindow().Process.MainModule.ModuleName == "chrome.exe" 
       || sp.ForegroundWindow().Process.MainModule.ModuleName == "PotPlayerMini64.exe"){
        sp_config.SecondaryStrokeButton = MouseButtons.Middle;
    } else {
        sp_config.SecondaryStrokeButton = MouseButtons.None;
    }
}
catch {}


Of course, make sure to change MouseButtons.Middle to whatever mouse button you want to use as your secondary.

i tried to activate "draw gestures" and now i sse that using middle button on potplayer drwas a red line, that is good because red is for secondary button
But i don't understand why it doesn't perfmorm ALT+Arrow command

A second problem is that i have 2 monitors and when i change from having both on or just one, this script stop working and i have to restart strokesplus

EDIT
i found the problem. it was in app definition for potplayer.

But i found a new problem

Usually gestures work even if the window i want to move it is not selected before. I mean...let's say i'm on firefox on monitor 1 and i have potplayer fullscreen on monitor 2. if i use a gesture on potplayer with primary button, it works perfectly just because potplayer was below the cursor.
But if i use the secondary button, with the script, it doesn't work the first time. the first time is needed to take focus of that window and then the gesture works.

I would like to have the same behavior i have when i use primary button

That's because the script which enables the secondary button only executes when the foreground (active) window changes.

So until PotPlayer is the active window, the secondary button is not enabled - there's no easy way around this since you don't want the secondary active in other applications. To configure stroke buttons based on the window below the cursor would require a major rewrite of S+ and is not something I am considering at this point in time due to the amount of work involved and that it would affect performance since S+ would constantly be examining windows every time the mouse moves.

Why it works the second time is because the secondary button is being clicked on PotPlayer just as if S+ was not running, which causes PotPlayer to become activated, this then executes the foreground window change script which enables the secondary button.
