Can someone describe (or just give me some code) how to use GetCursorPos(); (windows api). Ive checked msdn.. and .. it didnt really help. I know i pass a structure with an x and y variable in (maybe a pointer to the structure (??), i really didnt understand the stuff at msdn) but I cant get anything to work.
