Structures and wincon.h
I am trying to use the console header that comes with the windows header file, wincon.
I keep getting the error:
"Structure required on left side of . or .*."
This is the bit of code that is having the problem:
INPUT_RECORD * Monkey;
unsigned long King = 6;
unsigned long DUMB = 9;
unsigned long * DUMBER = &King;
ReadConsoleInputA(GetStdHandle(STD_INPUT_HANDLE), Monkey, DUMB, DUMBER);
int X = Monkey.Event.EventType.dwMousePosition.X;
cout << "X = " << X;
I have no idea what it means but if you could help me that would be great, thanks.
"Monkey" is a pointer. You must access it with "->".
