Returns in pixels the current output position in the specified window.

Point _WGetCursorP(WHANDLE wh)
WHANDLE wh;            /* Window handle. */


For more information on how to create an API library and integrate it with Visual FoxPro, see Accessing the Visual FoxPro API.


The following example creates a window and draws a diagonal pattern of Xs in this window. It positions the cursor before writing each X using _WPosCursorP(В ), and gets that same position using _WGetCursorP(В ).
