VB6 - Locating the absolute position of the mouse.

This feature allows you to know exact the position of the mouse from the screen and irrelevant from the sheet or control it contains.

The Module

Declaring the function

Public Type POINTAPI 
        x As Long 
        y As Long 
End Type 
Public m_CursorPos As POINTAPI 

Public Declare Function GetCursorPos Lib "user32" (lpPoint As POINTAPI) As Long

Creating the function

Sub GetCursor() 
Dim LonCStat As Long 
    LonCStat = GetCursorPos&(m_CursorPos) 
    'to use this result, the data must be converted into Pixel 
    m_CursorPos.x = m_CursorPos.x * Screen.TwipsPixelX 
    m_CursorPos.y = m_CursorPos.y * Screen.TwipsPixelY 
End Sub
