Magic VLSI Layout Tool Version 7.3 *


Return magic internal coordinates of the cursor (X11 pointer)




The cursor command returns the current position of the cursor (the X11 pointer, not the magic cursor box) in internal layout coordinates.

Implementation Notes:

cursor is implemented as a built-in window command in magic. In the Tcl version of magic, it returns a Tcl result (list of two elements, x and y coordinates).

Like all window commands, it reports relative to the existing window if only one window is present, or the active window if called with the ":" macro. Otherwise, it must be called using the tk_path_name command to specify relative to which layout window the cursor coordinates will be given.
