    then you will have to work directly with X.
    (Why can't you use QMouseEvent?)

    Qt Code:
    1. QPoint p = widget->mapFromGlobal(QCursor::pos());
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    sure,I am building a GUI program, but mouseMove event just can be captured when left
    or right button is pressed, which is different with windows ,and grap mouse input is
    dangerous,so I have to get mouse position in timerEvent().
