    I have seen programs that use a "Shift" Hot Key and then restrict the mouse to either vertical or horizontal movement on 3rd party programs, I am trying to emulate this writing in VB6, I presume that the curve ratio's are changed in the registry unless there is an api that has the same effect, does anyone have any suggestions where to start with this?

    many thanks

    Try upgrading to Microsoft Visual Basic 2008 Express, it will be much easier. You would need to set a boundry for where the mouse can go and if the mouse deviates from this boundary then move it back into it. I can help you code something if you want.
