Ok well MouseLink comes with complete dox on how to do this, but it’s realy not that explanatory…

I wrote a seg called PSE.QUOTE.SEG that has mouse control too, you can look at that (if it’s not up here I’ll put it up) but here’s a short explanation:

when the user clicks the mouse, it first sends a chr$(30) over the modem to tell that the mouse was clicked and to get ready to wait for two more keys (the location of the mouse). Then the ascii value +32 is sent of x and y in that order. A small routine to do that would be

get i$
if i$<>chr$(30) goto start
get x$
get y$
print “The Mouse was Clicked at location “x”,”y
goto start
hope this helps!
