In general, by using Mouse Move event.

Use the VI's Mouse Move event if your LV version < 8.x, or the Pane's Mouse Move event if you have LV 8.x. Smiley Happy

You ll get to see the Coordinates output in the event data node on the left border of teh Event Structure.

Hi muks,

you can also use the "GetCursorPos" function from the User32.dll.

Hope it helps.

LabVIEW has Input device VIs for those functions.
And especially the Mouse Input.



But when you want the know the position on the front panel I would go for FP events.
