In windows there is a GetCursorPos function (located in windows.h) which returns the cursors coordinates (x and y).

I have made an MFC application which displays the cursor coordinates (testing perposes).

Using the MFC ::OnMouseMove(UINT nFlags, CPoint point) event, i have got it to update everytime the mouse is moved. But when the cursor leaves the dialog area, OnMouseMove does not work anymore, due to window focusing.

How can i make OnMouseMove also work outside my MFC app, (i have already tried using a timer, eventually it eats to much CPU)??

Thanks in advance, Zac.
