    Exclamation Visual C++ 6.0 Console Application

    Hello.

    How can i control the mouse coordinates and buttons events in the Visual Studio C++ 6.0 win32 console application.

    Please help me (i tried to do it in assembly but it brings the blue screen with an error.).
    (I program in Delphi but i have to do a work in visual c++ in console mode and i've never did one.)

    Thanx...

    To be honest, I don't know how and if you can. But you shouldn't need to. If you need mouse control, do a windows application. If you need simple keyboard control, stay with the console.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    You can't, console mode is text only so the mouse routines will give you errors if you try to run it.

    I'm not sure how you want to control the mouse co-ordinates but if the console has the ENABLE_MOUSE_INPUT flag set (which I believe is the default setting) then you can get the inputted mouse events with the ReadConsoleInput() function.
