for direct input I need to know how to tell when the mouse button goes up. (using a define) also I would like to know how you know if the mouse button is clicked - i.e. when it goes down and then up.

it depends.

based on your question it sounds like you need to use buffered data collection from the mouse, so you can get "state" changes.

you would read the buffer and then loop through the states to see what state it has gone back and forth (up down up down)

If you do immediate mode then you could lose "states"(clicks) if your don''t sample incredibly fast.

I would look at the mouse tutorial in the SDK for how to do this.

Reading DirectInput is easy and the mouse state structure that show the UP/Down state of the mouse buttons.
