HI,

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_end")

Global $start = MouseGetPos()

$gui = GUICreate("GUI", 30, 30, $start[0] - 15, $start[1] - 15, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)
GUISetBkColor(0x00FF00)

_GUICreateInvRect($gui, 5, 5, 20, 20)
GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(10)
    $now = MouseGetPos()
    WinMove($gui, "", $now[0] - 15, $now[1] - 15)
WEnd

Func _GUICreateInvRect($hwnd, $l, $t, $w, $h)
    $pos = WinGetPos($hwnd)
    $1 = 0
    $2 = 0
    $3 = $pos[2]
    $4 = $t
    $ret = DllCall("gdi32.dll", "long", "CreateRectRgn", "long", $1, "long", $2, "long", $3, "long", $4)

Hi,

study the code, I guess it is pretty easy to do what you want. :-)

It you can't get it running, post again and tell me the size, color and position of the square.

So long,
