Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public static Point MousePosition { get; }
/** @property */
public static Point get_MousePosition ()

public static function get MousePosition () : Point

Not applicable.

Property Value

A Point that contains the coordinates of the mouse cursor relative to the upper-left corner of the screen.

The MousePosition property returns a Point that represents the mouse cursor position at the time the property was referenced.

The following code example puts a TreeNode label into an editable state when the user presses ALT-E while the mouse cursor is over the tree node. After the user is done editing the label, the labels cannot be edited again until the ALT-E key combination is pressed again. This example requires that you have a TreeView on a Form. The tree view should also have at least one TreeNode in its Nodes collection.

private void treeView1_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
{
   /* If the 'Alt' and 'E' keys are pressed,
      * allow the user to edit the TreeNode label. */
   if(e.Alt && e.KeyCode == Keys.E)
         
   {
      treeView1.LabelEdit = true;
      // If there is a TreeNode under the mose cursor, begin editing. 
      TreeNode editNode = treeView1.GetNodeAt(
         treeView1.PointToClient(Control.MousePosition));
      if(editNode != null)
      { 
         editNode.BeginEdit();
      }
   }
}

private void treeView1_AfterLabelEdit(object sender, NodeLabelEditEventArgs e)
{
   // Disable the ability to edit the TreeNode labels.
   treeView1.LabelEdit = false;
}

private void treeView1_KeyDown(Object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
{
    /* If the 'Alt' and 'E' keys are pressed,
       allow the user to edit the TreeNode label. 
     */
    if (e.get_Alt() && e.get_KeyCode() == Keys.E) {
        treeView1.set_LabelEdit(true);
        // If there is a TreeNode under the mose cursor, begin editing. 
        TreeNode editNode = treeView1.GetNodeAt(treeView1.PointToClient(
            Control.get_MousePosition()));
        if (editNode != null) {
            editNode.BeginEdit();
        }
    }
} //treeView1_KeyDown

private void treeView1_AfterLabelEdit(Object sender, 
    NodeLabelEditEventArgs e)
{
    // Disable the ability to edit the TreeNode labels.
    treeView1.set_LabelEdit(false);
} //treeView1_AfterLabelEdit
