Warning

This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, the name of this function, and anything else documented about this function may change without notice in a future release of PHP. Use this function at your own risk.

Event options will be delivered in parameter mevent, which has to be an array, passed by reference (see example below). On success an associative array with following keys will be delivered:

  • "id" : Id to distinguish multiple devices

  • "x" : screen relative x-position in character cells

  • "y" : screen relative y-position in character cells

  • "z" : currently not supported

  • "mmask" : Mouse action

Example 1. ncurses_getmouse() example

<?php
switch (ncurses_getch){
  case NCURSES_KEY_MOUSE:
    if (!ncurses_getmouse(&$mevent)){
      if ($mevent["mmask"] & NCURSES_MOUSE_BUTTON1_PRESSED){
        $mouse_x = $mevent["x"]; // Save mouse position
        $mouse_y = $mevent["y"];
      }
    }
  break;

  default:
    ....
}
 ?>
