In a module, I have:

Type PointApi
  x As Long
  y As Long
End Type

Declare Function GetCursorPos Lib "user32" (IpPoint As PointApi) As Long
‘’’’’’’’’’’’’’
In a cmdButton_Click, I have

Private Button1_Click()
Dim p As PointApi
Dim xp As Long
Dim yp As Long
xp = GetCursorPos(p)
yp = GetCursorPos(p)
MsgBox xp & ", " & yp          ‘<---  no matter where I click, I get 1, 1

End Sub

Also, I would like to get the Button1.Top and Button1.Left as well.  Thank you in advance for your input.

I dont know what you want to acheive with the command button, however, using the MouseDown event you can get the precise location of the mouse using the integrated X and Y variables:

Private Sub Command1_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
'where X and Y are the mouse location
'do your stuff
End Sub

Try using this code in the command button.


Dim p As PointApi

Call GetCursorPos(p)
MsgBox p.x & ", " & p.y
