Requires: Full Development System
Class: Control Events
Generated when you click the mouse button on a specific control.
|Source||Source of the event. LabVIEW UI refers to any built-in user interface event.
|Type||Type of event that occurred, such as Mouse Down, Value Change, Timeout, and so on.|
|Time||Value of the millisecond timer when the event occurred.|
|CtlRef||Reference to the control on which the event occurred.|
|Coords||Coordinates of the mouse at the location of the mouse click at the time of the event. Coordinates are relative to the pane's origin.|
|Button||Value that corresponds to which mouse button the user clicked. Left mouse button is 1, right mouse button is 2. Operating systems might assign higher numbers if you have a mouse with more than two buttons. For filter events, you can modify the data returned by this event data field.|
|Mods||Cluster of Booleans that contain platform-independent modifiers. LabVIEW returns all platform-dependent modifiers in the PlatMods event data field. For key events, this event returns a Boolean indicating if the event occurred on the numeric keypad. For mouse events, this event returns a Boolean indicating if the event was a double-click. For both events, a Boolean is returned if the platform-independent menu key, such as <Ctrl> on Windows or <Command> on Mac OS X, was pressed when the event occurred. For filter events, you can modify the data returned by this event data field.|
|PlatMods||Cluster of Booleans that contain platform-dependent modifiers. Specifies if platform-dependent keys, such as <Ctrl>, <Shift>, <Alt>, <Command>, and <Option> were held down when the event was triggered. For filter events, you can modify the data returned by this event data field. A key can be both a Mod and PlatMod. For example, <Ctrl> is the platform-independent menu key on Windows, but you also can use it in platform-dependent programming.|
|Discard?||Allows you to prevent LabVIEW from processing the event, bypassing the behavior normally triggered by that event. The default is FALSE.|
Refer to the Left-click Shortcut Menu VI in the labview\examples\general directory for an example of using the Mouse Down? event.
