  CursorPos : TPoint;
 begin
   { get mouse cursor position }
GetCursorPos(CursorPos);
   { show our mouse mos }
label1.caption :=inttostr(CursorPos.X);

or should i say you can use "either" the uncommented code or the commented code whichever one suits you best:


procedure TForm1.Image1MouseUp(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
//var
//  CursorPos : TPoint;
 begin
label1.caption :=inttostr(X);
label2.caption :=inttostr(Y);
//GetCursorPos(CursorPos);
//label1.caption :=inttostr(CursorPos.X);
//label2.caption :=inttostr(CursorPos.Y);
end;
