Using C# How can I sample the current mouse position in a window

Last Modified: 2017-05-25
The title is a bit of an over-simplification! What i would like to do is to create a full screen window and manually move my mouse around this window. I would like to have my program sample the mouse coordinates relative to the screen at short intervals to enable me to record a series of points which describe the object I have just drawn. I'm new to c# and to programming so you may need to be gentle!! Thanks. Ian
