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.
