trailing the cursor in labview

How can I trail the cursor in LabView on the front panel? I will like to program something that while the code is running, LabView will outline the cursor positions, hence trail the mouse. Is this a possibility, if so can anyone help me with ideas as to how I can do this?

 

Thank you,

 

Temi

A while back Darin K. posted the  "Ultimate.vi" it contains some code that controls the cursor position.  A simialar approach could be used to READ the cursor position and control a FP object's Position property. A shift register would allow you to determine direction ans speed of the mousr to set an effective "trail"

Or, this?  This will have the Boolean indicator follow the mouse around the Front Panel.
