I have troubles reading x and y values from the mouse in my fullscreen application. initialization:
Dim state as MouseState
Dim buttons As Byte()
Dim Mouse As DirectInput.Device

Mouse = New DirectInput.Device(SystemGuid.Mouse)
Mouse.SetCooperativeLevel(Form1, CooperativeLevelFlags.Foreground Or CooperativeLevelFlags.Exclusive)

My sub for reading input:
    Public Sub CheckInput()

        state = Mouse.CurrentMouseState
        buttons = state.GetMouseButtons()

        If buttons(1) <> 0 Then
            MsgBox(state.X & " " & state.Y)
        End If

    End Sub

The problem is the MsgBox always gives me 0 0
