HI. I'm trying to create a program that will allow the user to press the mouse left button anywhere on the screen, drag, and let go, and the area will be saved to a bitmap or Jpeg image.
Q: How do I capture the mouse moves and get these coordinates properly?

u might have to use the mosusemotionlistener's method called mousedragged and the mouselistener's method called mousepressed and mousereleased with the x and y coordinate methods from the mouseevent api to determine the exact point u want that's all i can say and hope it helps
