MouseEventArgs.Y MouseEventArgs.Y MouseEventArgs.Y MouseEventArgs.Y Property

Definition

Gets the y-coordinate of the mouse during the generating mouse event.

public:
 property int Y { int get(); };
public int Y { get; }
member this.Y : int
Public ReadOnly Property Y As Integer

Property Value

The y-coordinate of the mouse, in pixels.

Examples

The following code example uses the X and Y properties to display the current position of the mouse pointer in a ToolTip window. To use this code, call TrackCoordinates from the form constructor.

ToolTip trackTip;

private void TrackCoordinates()
{
    trackTip = new ToolTip();
    this.MouseMove += new MouseEventHandler(Form1_MouseMove);
}

void Form1_MouseMove(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)
{
    String tipText = String.Format("({0}, {1})", e.X, e.Y);
    trackTip.Show(tipText, this, e.Location);
}
Dim TrackTip As ToolTip

Private Sub TrackCoordinates()
    TrackTip = New ToolTip()
End Sub

Private Sub Form1_MouseMove(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles Me.MouseMove
    Dim TipText As String = String.Format("({0}, {1})", e.X, e.Y)
    TrackTip.Show(TipText, Me, e.Location)
End Sub

Remarks

The mouse coordinates vary based on the event being raised. For example, when the Control.MouseMove event is handled, the mouse coordinate values are relative to the coordinates of the control that raised the event. Some events related to drag-and-drop operations have associated mouse coordinate values that are relative to the form origin or the screen origin.
