    Console Mouse and Key Input

    Hi.
    I created a little code that reads the input of the user by mouse and by key input. I actually couldn't really find any real usefull code only after a long search on msdn. I made this code for an example, to test if it is possible to read the user his mouse and key input and still have an never-ending-loop going on, and it worked. I will use this in my big project but I guessed it may come usefull for others. It's very easy and clear code and not that spagetti code from msdn, :P. I hope it may come usefull for you too.

    PHP Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <windows.h>

    using namespace std;

    bool Mouse_On;

    KEY_EVENT_RECORD Key;

    MOUSE_EVENT_RECORD Mouse;

    INPUT_RECORD Record_Input;

    DWORD Input_Size,
                 
    Event_Count;

    int main()
    {

        
    cout<< endl<< endl<< "Click on [HERE]";

        
    Mouse_On false;

        while ( 
    EOF )
        {

            
    GetNumberOfConsoleInputEvents GetStdHandle STD_INPUT_HANDLE ), & Event_Count );

            if ( 
    Event_Count != )
            {

                
    ReadConsoleInput GetStdHandle STD_INPUT_HANDLE ), & Record_Input1, & Input_Size );

                if ( 
    Record_Input.EventType == KEY_EVENT )
                {

                    
    Key Record_Input.Event.KeyEvent;

                    if ( 
    Key.bKeyDown == true )
                    {

                        if ( 
    Key.wVirtualKeyCode == VK_RIGHT )
                        {

                            
    cout<< endl<< endl<< "Right arrow";
                        }

                        else if ( 
    Key.wVirtualKeyCode == VK_LEFT )
                        {

                            
    cout<< endl<< endl<< "Left arrow";
                        }

                        else if ( 
    Key.wVirtualKeyCode == VK_RETURN )
                        {

                            
    cout<< endl<< endl<< "Enter key";
                        }
                    }
                }

                else if ( 
    Record_Input.EventType == MOUSE_EVENT )
                {

                    
    Mouse Record_Input.Event.MouseEvent;

                    if ( 
    Mouse.dwMousePosition.>= &&
                          
    Mouse.dwMousePosition.<= 14 &&
                          
    Mouse.dwMousePosition.== )
                    {

                        if ( 
    Mouse.dwButtonState == FROM_LEFT_1ST_BUTTON_PRESSED )
                        {

                               
    cout<< endl<< endl<< "You clicked on [HERE]";
                        }

                        else if ( 
    Mouse_On == false )
                        {

                            
    cout<< endl<< endl<< "Click now on [HERE]";

                            
    Mouse_On true;
                        }
                    }

                    else if ( 
    Mouse_On == true )
                    {

                        
    Mouse_On false;
                    }
                }
            }

            
    Sleep 100 );
        }
