rajeshwaran,

Look at GUIGetCursorInfo in the Help file - element [4] of the returned array will tell you what you want to know. ;)

But if you are using a message handler, you can get the info from there directly. :)

I am using the Message Handler

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_LBUTTONDOWN, "Mouse_LeftButton_Down")

This handler "Mouse_LeftButton_Down" is called for me whenever the mouse is clicked on Window area.

My understanding is, the same handler will be invoked when I press mouse left button on Listview, If I have not registerd the below messages.

GUIRegisterMsg($WM_NOTIFY, "Window_NotifyHandler")  
    GUIRegisterMsg($WM_COMMAND, "Window_EventHandler")

Am I right ?

rajeshwaran,

The WM_LBUTTONDOWN handler will be only called when you press the left mouse button within the GUI and not over a control. You do not need to register the other messages for it to work. If you click on the ListView, the mouse click is captured by the control and you will not see it.

Although I am not entirely sure, I believe the only way you can detect left mouse clicks on a ListView is by looking for a double-click as the ListView uses the single click to select the item. And I have already showed you how to do that. ;)
