The _MOUSEMOVEMENTY function returns the relative vertical position of the mouse cursor as positive or negative values.
verticalMove = _MOUSEMOVEMENTY
- Returns the relative vertical cursor pixel position compared to the previous cursor position. Negative values are up moves.
- Can also be used to check for any mouse movements to enable a program or close Screen Saver Programs.
- On Windows only, _MOUSEMOVEMENTY will continue to track the mouse when it is outside the program window.
MOD is used to keep vertical movement of circle and cursor inside of the SCREEN 13 window(200).
