    Hi, I use SetCursorPos for my Game, but I use a PictureBox with the BitBlt-API, the SetCursorPos-Function set the cursor on the x and y coordinates of the screen-object, how can I put the cursor on the position (where I have clicked) in the PictureBox and hold the cursor on that x and y coordinates (Cursor not movable) - or how can I set the cursor on MouseMove in the PictureBox the (clicked) x and y coordinates.

    Thanx for help and replies, MAJA.
    VB and Java are great - ja, so ist es !! To my software programming site: .

    You can use the ClipCursor api to lock the mouse pointer to a specific area.

    You have to recalculate X and Y again, because the picturebox is a client window of it's owner window.
