Does anybody know how to detect when both Right and Left mouse are clicked together. I want a CAD program to recognise that this has happened

Use the MouseDown event rather than the Click event.

A parameter called "Button" is passed to MouseDown.

If Button is 1, the left button was pressed.
If Button is 2, the right button was pressed.
If Button is 4, both buttons were pressed.
