It is possible to retrieve mouse events, set window sizes, and more but that goes beyond the scope of this document. Some of these things are difficult to do in Visual Basic, such as mouse event handling because of VB's limited support for pointers and advanced structure functionality such as unions. With a little work and writing some of the functionality in a C++ DLL, it is possible to make a great console program.

For more information, check the Console Functions page in the MSDN Library section, under the Reference section of the Platform SDK.
