    I'm pretty sure you can use TextBox.SelectionStart property to get the position of the insertion cursor. If you're talking about the mouse cursor, you can use Control.MousePosition static property.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    ok I got that now I need to get the x and y of the cursor relative to the main window. And yes I ment the textbox cursor not the windows cursor.

    I was thinking of just get the x and y of the textbox curosr than add the x and y of the textboxes upper left cornor. That would make it relative to the main window.
