Bug Description

Currently the mouse coordinates are not shown until the user moves the mouse which is not entirely intuitive. Instead, the coordinates should be displayed as soon as they are activated.

Keith Hughitt (keith-hughitt) wrote :

Since it's not possible to determine the mouse coordinates without the mouse being moved, as an alternative to continually tracking the mouse coordinates behind the scenes, a dummy "mousemove" event is fired when the mouse coordinates display is first enabled and placeholders are displayed with "--" in place for the actual coordinate values. As soon as the mouse is moved the placeholders are replaced with the computed mouse coordinates.
