When i release the mouse and get the co-ordinates of where the mouse has being released, e.getX(), e.getY(). it tells me that the position of my cursor is at aroung the top left hand corner of my screen, when in fact it is in the middle of the screen and no where near the co-ordinates it tells me its at, how can i solve this problem of the getting wrong position of my cursor, or any ideas as to what is making it hapen like this??

The x and y position you get are from the component where you handle the mouseReleased event.

So if you handle it on a button and you click on the upper left corner of the button you will get (0,0).

You need to translate those coordinates to screen coordinates using the position of your component as you reference.

so if you have a JWindow at position (100,100) in the screen and you release the mouse at position (50,50) in the JWindow then your cursor is at (150, 150) in the screen!
