Returns the x coordinate of the mouse in the window with respect to the given view.


window_view_mouse_get_x( id );

Argument Description
id The id of the view to compare the mouse position to.

Returns: Real


This function will return the mouse x position relative to the view selected. The following image illustrates how this works:

NOTE: For regular mouse functions see the section on Mouse Input.


if mouse_check_button_pressed(mb_left)
   var xx, yy;
   xx = window_view_mouse_get_x(0);
   yy = window_view_mouse_get_y(0);
   if xx > 0 && xx < 32 && yy > 0 && yy < 32
      b_press[0] = true;

The above code will check for a mouse button being pressed, and if it is it then gets the mouse position relative to the view[0] and compares it to see if a variable should be set to true.
