The status of mouse buttons

Visual Basic lets you test the state of mouse buttons only inside a MouseDown, MouseMove, or MouseUp event procedure. To determine the current state of mouse buttons you can use one of the following functions:


Private Declare Function GetAsyncKeyState Lib "user32" (ByVal vKey As Long) As _
    Integer

Function LeftButton() As Boolean
    LeftButton = (GetAsyncKeyState(vbKeyLButton) And &H8000)
End Function

Function RightButton() As Boolean
    RightButton = (GetAsyncKeyState(vbKeyRButton) And &H8000)
End Function

Function MiddleButton() As Boolean
    MiddleButton = (GetAsyncKeyState(vbKeyMButton) And &H8000)
End Function
If you prefer, you can use the following function, which returns the state of all three buttons as a bit-coded field, in the same format as the Button argument passed to mouse event procedures:


Function MouseButton() As Integer
    If GetAsyncKeyState(vbKeyLButton) < 0 Then
        MouseButton = 1
    End If
    If GetAsyncKeyState(vbKeyRButton) < 0 Then
        MouseButton = MouseButton Or 2
    End If
    If GetAsyncKeyState(vbKeyMButton) < 0 Then
        MouseButton = MouseButton Or 4
    End If
End Function
