Use the screenMouseLoc property to find out where the mouse pointer is, or to change the location of the mouse pointer.

Value:

The screenMouseLoc consists of two integers, separated by a comma.

Value:

The screenMouseLoc property reports the position of the mouse pointer in absolute coordinates--that is, relative to the top left of the main screen. (The mouseLoc function is similar, but its coordinates are relative to the defaultStack window rather than the screen.)

If you set this property, the mouse pointer is moved to the specified location on the screen.

Important! Taking over the position of the mouse pointer can disorient and confuse users, and user-interface standards warn against doing so for that reason. Consider setting the screenMouseLocproperty only in unusual situations (such as for a kiosk application or game). In normal desktop applications, the user expects a consistent user interface without such surprises. You must use this power only for good.

Changes to Revolution:

Support for using the screenMouseLoc with OS X systems was added in version 2.0.
