Instead of invention a new function and sticking it in a package, it would be really great if we could incorporate this idea into the root property "PointerLocation". It currently returns [0, 0], but this would be the Matlab compatible way to get the current location of the mouse pointer.

Anyone want to help turning the attached grab.cc into something that Octave can use for the PointerLocation property?

Hello guys

I had a look at the grab.cc in the windows package. It is supposed to
do the same thing as the old grab.cc (same original author Andy
Adler), but only on Win* systems. The source code of grab.cc in the
windows package is windows specific.
Thus at leas a name confict with the two files.

The "old" grab.cc is XWindows specific and needs to be compilded with
the correct flags (see source code).
Proposition: rename the grab.cc in the msicellanous package to
Xgrab.cc and make the monor change in xinput.m

I hope this helps

Andreas

Let's add Michael Goffioul (windows package maintainer) to the cc list.
I only noted that there's another grab.cc; I wouldn't know what to do next.
Michael might have some useful suggestions.

FYI, I compared the two grab.cc files and AFAICS they're mostly identical save for some lay-out and minor details.
So I'd say Andrea Stahel probably got it wrong - grab.cc does live on in an octave-forge package.

Thanks for your input Philip,

Some questions:
1. The windows package is for windows while the grab function work on X11. When will there be clashes? Shall we change the name of this grab to xgrab?

2. This function (according to Andrea Stahel who provide it) was in Octave and was removed, but never put in a package. Was there a particular reason for that?

There's already a grab.cc in the windows package which AFAICS does a similar thing.
So at least expect a name clash.

Note that Andy Adler (author of your grab.cc) is the original author of the windows package.

This functions would be a nice addition to a forge package, probably miscellaneous.

It was in Octave long ago but was removed due to ML incompatibility and system wm dependence.

juanpi will take care of it
