johnny,

In a Windows operating environment you can generally make the following calls:

// Call this function to get the position of the mouse in screen coordinates
BOOL GetCursorPos( LPPOINT lpPoint );

// Call this function to convert to client coords
// here hWnd refers to the window you're trying to make the coordinates
// relative to
BOOL ScreenToClient( HWND hWnd, LPPOINT lpPoint );

POINT mousePos;
GetCursorPos(&mousePos); // Get the mouse cursor 2D x,y position

// Mouse x Position = mousePos.x
// Mouse y Position = mousePos.y

if( (mousePos.x == 10) && (mousePos.y == 10) ) return 1;
