You often want GetMessagePos instead of GetCursorPos.

Quote:
The GetMessagePos function retrieves the cursor position for the last message retrieved by the GetMessage function.


Using GetCursorPos can often cause issues. Things like "when processing a click message, the mouse has already left the area of the button".

If you aren't using window's messages, you will want to emulate something like GetMessagePos in order to get a consistent cursor position when you are processing any one event.
