How to get the X and Y coordinate...?

Is there an easy way to get the X and Y coordinates. I do not mean for a single form, but for the entire screen...

There must be some windows function, that does that, I just can't find any :-(

You can use GetCursorPos or simply use Mouse.CursorPos (mouse is  global variable of type TMouse).

Both will return a TPoint structure:

type TPoint = record
  X: Longint;
  Y: Longint;

So, X is Mouse.CursorPos.X
Y is Mouse.CursorPos.Y

Thank you for the answer Alex. It was driving me crasy to try to find the function, so I'm very pleased :-)
