I don't have Delphi in front of me right now, but I know that most components should have an OnMouseMove event under the EVENTS tab in the Object Inspector.  Among the parameters passed in to this procedure are an X and Y which represent the X and Y positon of the cursor, either respective to the form or the component.

As far as SetCursorPos in Delphi...if I had my help in front of me...darn.

var
  Pt : TPoint;
begin
  GetCursorPos(pt);
  ShowMessage('X-Coord'+IntToStr(pt.x)+', Y-Coord'+IntToStr(pt.y));//Display coordinates
  SetCursorPos(pt);//if mouse have moved it will return it to the same place as before
end;

I don't know how to implement the TPoint in C++...maybe something like this...This is for Builder C++ , right?

POINT pt;
{
  GetCursorPos(pt);
  SetCursorPos(pt);
}

I mean .....still not sure if this is the way C++ implements Point variable

{
  POINT pt;
    GetCursorPos(pt);
    SetCursorPos(pt);
}

If you have other questions ask ;-)
