    Quick Help.

    Alright, I'm finishing up my game and I want to add one more function, I tried to make it so when you clicked the right mouse button it triggered an event.

    The left mouse button detector works, the right detector however, doesnt.

    Heres my code:

    Code:
    #include <iostream> //Some of theyse are unneeded in this snippit
    #include <windows.h> //But my whole code uses them all.
    #include <conio.h>
    #include <fstream.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    using namespace std;
    void Hi() {
     COORD Pos, Pos2;
     HANDLE hIn = GetStdHandle(STD_INPUT_HANDLE);
     HANDLE hOt = GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE);
     DWORD evk;
     INPUT_RECORD rec;
     int x_pos, y_pos, x;
    
     Pos2.X = 0;
     Pos2.Y = 0;
    
     while(!ok) {
      for(;;) {
       ReadConsoleInput(hIn, &rec, 1, &evk);
       if(rec.EventType == MOUSE_EVENT) {
        if(rec.Event.MouseEvent.dwButtonState == FROM_LEFT_1ST_BUTTON_PRESSED) {
         x_pos = rec.Event.MouseEvent.dwMousePosition.X;
         y_pos = rec.Event.MouseEvent.dwMousePosition.Y;
         break;
         }
        if(rec.Event.MouseEvent.dwButtonState == FROM_LEFT_2ND_BUTTON_PRESSED) {
         x_pos = rec.Event.MouseEvent.dwMousePosition.X;
         y_pos = rec.Event.MouseEvent.dwMousePosition.Y;
         Pos.X = x_pos;
         Pos.Y = y_pos;
         SetConsoleCursorPosition(hOt, Pos);
         cout << "To!";
         }
        }
       }
    }
    Well, as I said, a left click gets detected, a right click doesnt. I cant figure out why.

    Thank you very much!

    googling for FROM_LEFT_2ND_BUTTON_PRESSED most likely shows you the definition of the other buttons too.
