PointerPoint.GetCurrentPoint | getCurrentPoint methods

Retrieves position and state information for the specified pointer.
In most cases, we recommend that you obtain pointer info through the pointer event handlers of your chosen Windows 8 language framework (Windows Store apps using JavaScript, Windows Store apps using C++, C#, or Visual Basic, or Windows Store apps using DirectX with C++).
If the event argument doesn't expose the pointer details required by your app, you can get access to extended pointer data from the event argument through the getCurrentPoint and getIntermediatePoints methods or currentPoint and intermediatePoints properties. We recommend using the getCurrentPoint and getIntermediatePoints methods as you can specify the context of the pointer data.
The static PointerPoint methods, GetCurrentPoint and GetIntermediatePoints, always use the context of the app.
