i'm a begginer in C++ so plz forgive my lack of knowledge. I've been trying for 3days now to understand how to manage mouse events in C++ but in vain. i've tried searching the web but almost everything was out of date with headers no longer in use and mainly dealing with the possition of the mouse rather than the clicks. i even tried the msdn tutorials with no luck there either...i want to make a program that counts the 3 mouse buttons clicks but i don't even know how to count the left button clicks so... can someone provide me with the needed knowledge. eventually the final program would be a form that counts clicks and return some results based on them. for any further info plz let me know. thanks in advance for your time!!!
