MouGetPtrPos

From EDM2
Jump to: navigation, search

This call queries the mouse driver to determine the current row and column coordinate position of the mouse pointer.

Syntax

MouGetPtrPos(PtrPos, DeviceHandle);

Parameters

PtrPos (PPTRLOC) - output
Address of the mouse pointer position structure.
DeviceHandle (HMOU) - input
Contains the handle of the mouse device obtained from a previous MouOpen.

Return Code

rc (USHORT) - return
Return code descriptions are:
  • 0 NO_ERROR
  • 385 ERROR_MOUSE_NO_DEVICE
  • 466 ERROR_MOU_DETACHED
  • 501 ERROR_MOUSE_NO_CONSOLE
  • 505 ERROR_MOU_EXTENDED_SG

Sample

#define INCL_MOU
#include <os2.h>

PPTRLOC    PtrPos;        /* Pointer to the mouse pointer data structure. */
HMOU       DeviceHandle;  /* Reserved.  Must be 0. */
APIRET     rc;            /* Return code. */

rc = MouGetPtrPos(PtrPos, DeviceHandle);


Remarks

For a text window (VIO) application, the text window is a view on the larger logical video buffer (LVB). The mouse pointer can be outside that view and still be within the extent of the LVB. MouGetPtrPos then returns the coordinates of the cell under the mouse pointer. If the pointer is outside the LVB image extent, the coordinates of the nearest LVB cell are returned. In either case, the LVB is scrolled until the reported LVB cell appears within the view window.

Bindings

C

typedef struct _PTRLOC { /* moupl */
  USHORT row;            /* pointer row coordinate screen position */
  USHORT col;            /* pointer column coordinate screen position */
} PTRLOC;

#define INCL_MOU

USHORT  rc = MouGetPtrPos(PtrPos, DeviceHandle);

PPTRLOC          PtrPos;        /* Double word structure */
HMOU             DeviceHandle;  /* Mouse device handle */

USHORT           rc;            /* return code */
