You often want GetMessagePos instead of GetCursorPos.

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.
