GetClipCursor function (winuser.h)

Retrieves the screen coordinates of the rectangular area to which the cursor is confined.

Syntax

BOOL GetClipCursor(
  [out] LPRECT lpRect
);

Parameters

[out] lpRect

Type: LPRECT

A pointer to a RECT structure that receives the screen coordinates of the confining rectangle. The structure receives the dimensions of the screen if the cursor is not confined to a rectangle.

Return value

Type: BOOL

If the function succeeds, the return value is nonzero.

If the function fails, the return value is zero. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks

The cursor is a shared resource. If an application confines the cursor with the ClipCursor function, it must later release the cursor by using ClipCursor before relinquishing control to another application.

The calling process must have WINSTA_READATTRIBUTES access to the window station.

Examples

For an example, see Confining a Cursor.
