MouseCoords is a Screenbar-Plugin for MorphOS.

The most obvious feature of MouseCoords is its display of the mouse coordinates in the
screen title. It can also display information about windows/layers under the mouse
pointer. Furthermore it offers an easy way to measure distances on the screen in pixels by
either holding the left or middle mouse button, an optional set of qualifiers and a pixel
distance threshold.

Everything is fully configurable.

Double-Click the Install icon and MouseCoords_sbar will be installed to your system.

For manual installation simply copy the contents of the "Copy_To_Sys"
drawer to your SYS: partition.
Enter in a Shell: copy ram:MouseCoords_sbar/Copy_To_Sys/#? to SYS: ALL

Now click with the right mouse button on the screen depth gadget to open
its context menu, go to "Modules" and select "Refresh". MouseCoords should
now appear in the Screen title bar. If it does not appear open the context
menu again, and go to "Modules" again and select MouseCoords from the
modules shown there.

Open the context menu of the screen depth gadget and select the "Settings ..." menu
item. Select MouseCoords from the list in the window that just opened to configure this

Colour: Set the colour for the labels displayed in the title bar.
Use default colour: Use the default text colour for labels. This disables the Colour
X-Label: Specify the text that is displayed in front of the X coordinate
Y-label: Same as X-Label but for Y.
Bold: Print the label texts in bold.

Text Colour: Set the colour for text displayed in the title bar.
Use default colour: Use the default text colour. This disables the Colour setting.

Origin at 1:1: By default MouseCoords displays the coordinates with an origin of 0:0.
With this option enabled the origin will be at 1:1

Mouse Distance:
In this group you can enable and disable the Mouse Distance feature of MouseCoords.
The activation method can be specified by these options:

- Select if either the left or the middle button needs to be pressed. The right mouse
button is intentionally left out since it clashes with the way intuition menus are
activated and handled.

Mouse Move Threshhold: Here you set the number of pixels the mouse pointer needs to
be moved before the Mouse Distance Window is opened. This can
range from immediate (1 Pixel) to a mind numbing 1000 pixels.

Qualifier: This ensemble of checkmarks makes it possible to specify exactly
which qualifier keys need to be pressed in order to open the
Mouse Distance Window additonally to the above mentioned
activation methods. Please note that all qualifiers specified
must be pressed at once to trigger.

Distance Marker: In addition to the Distance Window it is also possible to have
MouseCoords draw a line or an arrow between the start and end
points of the distance measurement. This is done with this cycle
gadget. Please note that this option needs 3D-Layers/Compositing
to be enabled.

V1.3 (23.01.2021)
- Fixed a use-after-free bug in library code that could cause all kinds of problems. A big Thank You to Thomas Igracki for fixing and proving the multilibrary ecx module!
- Fixed a potential write to NULL on MUIA_Text_Contents.
- Added help bubbles to all prefs gadgets.

V1.2 (26.12.2018)
- Clicking the MouseCoords in the screen title now opens a small window that gives information about the underlying window of the mouse pointer when being moved around. Try it :-)
- Catalogs were installed to just locale: and not locale:catalogs/. Fixed.
- Added a "Distance Moved" window that shows some infos when clicking and holding LMB or MMB and an optional set of qualifiers and moving the mouse around. Threshold can be configured or switched off altogether.
- Labels were always printed bold. It's now possible to turn bold on/off.
- Added french translation by Philippe 'OffseT' Rimauro.
- Prefs image/object handling was wrong and could lead to crashes. Fixed.

V1.1 (30.11.2018)
- The colour of labels and coordinates can now be set to use screenbar default colour. (jPV)

V1.0 (27.11.2018)
- Initial release

Thanks to:
- Leif Salomonsson for ECX :-)

- MorphOS-Team for MorphOS :-)

- Philippe Rimauro for the french translation
