    Exclamation Visual C++ 6.0 Console Application

    Hello.

    How can i this algorithm in VC++ in a win32 console application:

    if (left_mouse_button=clicked) and
    (x>10) and (x<20) and (y=5)
    then ...

    (I program 100% of time in delphi and a little in C++ but i have to do a program to a discipline in university...)

    In assembly and in turbo c++ i know how to work with mouse but in VC++ in console mode i don't know because it brings the blue screen.

    Thanx...

    You can read the mouse buttons like this -

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <windows.h>
    using namespace std;
    
    
    int main() {
    
    	INPUT_RECORD ir;
    	DWORD read;
    	HANDLE h = GetStdHandle(STD_INPUT_HANDLE);
    	SetConsoleMode(h, ENABLE_PROCESSED_INPUT | ENABLE_MOUSE_INPUT);	
    
    		while(1)
    		{
    			FlushConsoleInputBuffer(h);
    
    			ReadConsoleInput(h,&ir,1,&read);
    			if(ir.Event.MouseEvent.dwButtonState&FROM_LEFT_1ST_BUTTON_PRESSED)
    				cout << "left button" << endl;
    
    			
    		}
    	
        return 0;
    }
    **Note - the only way I could get this to work properly was either running the console full screen or disabling QuickEdit Mode from the console properties.
