It would be very hard to post the whole code because its separated in many
I created a plugin-based framework and made it to open unlimited pop-ups. I
made a main class Window which is responsible for all widgets in it. Window
has a method add_row() so i am building whatever mixed widget i want.
Example code for the menu from above:
            window = self.new_window(21, 55, text="Choose User and Pass for
each host (%s)" % len(hosts))
            for item in hosts:
                window.add_row([ BaseInput(' User: ',value=item[1][0]),
BaseInput(' Pass: ',value=item[1][1]) ],border=item[0])
            window.add_buttons([ "Done"])
            return window
The result from the code above is in the attached screenshot.
So, i want to use the mouse scroll to scroll the rows instead of the
keyboard, but i cant convert the mouse_event to keypress up/down.
