OK, Been programming in BASIC, VB, Clipper, Dbase, 6809E asembler, 8088 assembler since 79 and through the years tried to get going on C++. I always seem to get stuck getting a handle on what libraries I need to include to get even the most basic things going.
Well, guess what.. I can draw stupid little circles and stuff, do drop down menus and dialog boxes, but do you think I can get a handle on the mouse so I can track it's position at any given moment? Noooo way.
I've got my message handler all set up and ready for the WM_MOUSEMOVE message but havn't got the foggiest where to get the pointer location from.
Once I get it, I'm just gonna spit it back out next to the mouse pointer for a simple excersize. My simple windows program only carries the window.h library.
Not looking for masses of code here, just enough to get me over this hump.
