Pixel Position from a Mouse in DOS
Posted on 1998-09-15
I need to use a DOS program in a Win95/98 DOS box that uses a mouse to get position information (resolution 512x480) with single pixel point increments in x and y. The DOS program does not have a mouse driver of it's own but used to a 16 bit driver and a memory resident program that converted mouse movements to look like single keyboard strokes (arrows). In my hands the mouse commands that use int 33 only return the mouse position in increments of 8, with a maximun row number of 200 (a text mode).
Basically I need to get every incremental step movement of the mouse so that I can drive the pixel location of a pointer in frame frabber card.
Thanks for your help.
