    Well, I can't answer you such big question in this post. You have to choose first a development tool, ideal would be Microsoft Visual C++ or Borland C++ Builder, but if you can't pay for it, you can get Dev-C++ for free, in last case, you will need a GUI library to make things easier, could be wxWindows (Visual C++ has MFC and C++ Builder has OWL, already).
    The GUI library of every compiler will facilitate you the development of a graphical application, including everything concerning mouse handling.

    i have got turbo Cv3.0  and i use it for C++ applications i can do programming in C++ easily and i am familiour with the Graphic liabries of C++ too like the colours / backgrounds but i can't activate the Mouse in C++ or  can move and regarding the size of post can u just send a simple example program in which the mouse handling is used and link for an additional header file if that going to be used.

    Turbo C++? from Borland Museum? I guess you are refering to DOS applications.
