you can use it like this. The advantage is that you can also use the scroll position.
A related query. I want to know the mouse position relative to an item on the front panel (eg, an LED). The "acquire input data" vi tells me the mouse position relative to the computer screen, and the "position" property of the LED tells me its position relative to the window, but I need to tie these together.
In other words, I either need to be able to read the position of the LED on the computer screen (preferable); OR I need to be able to read the position of the mouse within the window.
Anyone know how I can do either of these?
