hi..below is my program..i need help modifying it..im using XWindow on linux..i need help on:

- draw graphics on the window
- report mouse movement
- report mouse-button presses
- report keyboard presses

Draw graphic...my program can already draw graphic..the window pops up and i can draw graphic by touching my mouse and putting the cursor over the screen..my goal is not to touch the mouse and let the window pop up and pixels color the window by itself..it fills up the screen by itself without having me to touch the mouse..if i touch the mouse and press button..i should see on my screen that "you pressed the left button" like that...

Shahrine, which topic did you post this to? I am reading it in software/cygwin which is primarily for help in getting *nix utilities running in MS Windows.

I think it is probably not an appropriate list to get help on X-Window programming.

This may be an example of the new EE posting wizard "helping" you to post to the inappropriate list ;-)
