Hi,
Yes another dreaded assignment......I have to, instead of drawing a filled box, give the user the position of the mouse click in pixels when the mouse is clicked on the screen. Any cluse as to how I could modify this program to do that?
Thanks, Mary Ellen

Well you already have the listener set up and it already grabs the x and y coordinates for you, so all you have to do is get rid of the thing that draws the rectangle:
g.fillRect(x-5, y-5, 10, 10);
and replace it with something that displays a message. If you read the API for the Graphics class you will find a drawString() method that takes in a String and the x and y coordinate to display it at. So if you put in:
String s ="The mouse is at x=" + x + " and y=" + y;
g.drawString(s, x , y );
it should work.
