PowerShell WPF Mouse cursor tracker

Currently I am working on a PowerShell GUI project where I need to track Mouse Cursor. In this article this is a sample code to track Mouse Cursor. As you move mouse on GUI console, it shows the position of mouse.

In this sample code it uses MouseMove event and Windows.Input.Mouse position to get information of cursor position. You can download this Get-Mouse-Poistion.ps1 script or it is also available on github.com.

# Create the WPF window
$window = New-Object System.Windows.Window

$window.Height = 300
$window.WindowStartupLocation = "CenterScreen"

# Create the label to display mouse position
$label = New-Object System.Windows.Controls.Label
$label.HorizontalAlignment = "Center"
$label.VerticalAlignment = "Center"

# Add the label to the window's content
$window.Content = $label

# Subscribe to the MouseMove event
$window.Add_MouseMove({
    $position = [System.Windows.Input.Mouse]::GetPosition($window)
    $label.Content = "X: $($position.X), Y: $($position.Y)"
})

# Show the window
$window.ShowDialog() | Out-Null
