Properties[edit]

  • .mx and .my - returns the position of the mouse relative to the main mIRC window
  • .dx and .dy - returns the position of the mouse relative to the desktop window
  • .cx and .cy - returns position relative to the primary monitor.
  • .win - returns the name of the active window
  • .lb - returns $true if a mouse event occured over a listbox, $false otherwise.
  • .key - Returns a bitmask, you can use the bitwise & operator to check for button/shift/alt/control state:
    • if ($mouse.key & 1) echo left button is pressed.
    • if ($mouse.key & 2) echo control key is pressed.
    • if ($mouse.key & 4) echo shift key is pressed.
