How can I display and update the current mouse position while ginput() is waiting for the user to click? I have tried using textarea=uitextarea('Value',str1); but it only displays something once, after the user clicks. Thank you.

Thank you John BG. I have read the ginputc() help and downloaded the routine. It does not do what I am seeking, since it does not allow me to display something (namely the scaled cursor position), and change what I am displaying as the cursor moves, while waiting for the user to click. I will keep looking in the file exchange.

Thank you Vishal N. I have looked at ginputc(). It is very nice but does not do what I am hoping to do.
