is there any way to the position of the mouse on a canvas except in the pressed.eventhandler ?
I would like to make a signature area where i get the first keypress Position and then just use a timer to get the sampled mouse movment until the mousebutton is released.
But actually i do not have any clue how to get data from the mousemovement or the mousekeyup/released event (which are missing in the web apps)?
I read a lot here and on the web, people mentioning the different style how xojo.web is working and the needs to keep trafficrates low.
But actually any web-app knows where the mousePointer is, how would the graphic changes in the built in buttons be made when your mousehover over them is recognized ?
Is there a simple way to access the mousepointer position(x,y) and the status of the left mouse key (pressed or not ?) in a XOJO web app ?
i understand the needs to keep datatransfer as low as possible.
But some solutions like the signature-area just need that mouse movment and button event tracking.
Diving into WebSDK the last days, now more focussing on understanding java and json.
At least i asked my boss about the future needs of a better UI handling, maybe he looks into it too and makes a decision. Thank you for your respnose.
