Delphi 1.0:

How do I determine the location of the mouse pointer in x,y FORM coordinates?  I see there is a Getcursorpos WinAPI function, however I can't make sense out of it.  I don't want a TPoint value returned...instead, I need the X and I need the Y values separately.

A TPoint value contains both the X and Y coordinates.

ex.

var
 MouseCoordinate: TPoint;
 X, Y: Integer;
begin
 GetCursorPos( MouseCoordinate);
 X:= MouseCoordinate.X;
 Y:= MouseCoordinate.Y;
end;

If you dosn't understand, just comment it.

With best regards
