You know how windows has GetAsyncKeyState(), I was wondering if it had anything like that for the mouse. You know, a function that took two paramiters by refrence, one for x and one for y. It''s so I don''t have to use DirectInput.

GetAsyncKeyState(VK_LBUTTON), and GetAsyncKeyState(VK_RBUTTON) get the states of the left and right mouse buttons, respectively. If it is a 3 button mouse, VK_MBUTTON gets the middle button.

GetCursorPos takes a POINT as a parameter.
for example -

POINT position;
//position.x would be the x position
//position.y would be the y position

You can always just look at the Windows messages that relate to the mouse:


Those may not be exactly right (I''m away from home, no MSDN...) but you get the idea. I''m pretty sure there is a message or two for the wheel also, if you wanted to do something with that.
