Current_Cursor_X and Current_Cursor_Y Problem only gives me back -1 and -1 when I set the value of these global properities to the value of an TextEdit Box.

I need this for some kind of “screen saver”, so I need to check, if the Position of the cursor has changed since the last check, and if n Checks are successful (cursor hasn’t moved) the screensaver page will be loaded. If a check fails (the cursor moved) the cursor check variable is set to zero again.

But it won’t work, when the Current_Cursor Properties are always set to -1.

I have this Problem in all of my browsers (SRW Iron, Moz FF, IE, Chrome, Safari, Opera).

Hi Robert, you would need to handle the “Global Mouse Move” event, thus the Current_Cursor_X and Current_Cursor_Y properties would be updated.



thanks for your help.
I discovered an odd behaviour.

If I choose the action ‘Set Global Property’ and choosing the property name with a click on ‘…’ and I choose my User Defined Property ‘mouse_x’ the Property gets curly braces around.

Setting New Value and Clicking Ok puts another pair of curly braces around ‘mouse_x’.

Is this a bug?
I could provide Screens if you like.


Hi Robert, that’s an intended behavior. You can use “…” button to pick a property as part of the new property name, thus you have the chance to create a “dynamic” property with name defined by other properties.

You can try this example (I defined a property named “p1” and its value is 0):

Once you click the button, the popup message box will show you the value of “g0” property, which is “abc”.
