Hi Everyone!
I am struggling on how to get the Mouse Coordinates in the Viewport.
I can get the screen coordinates using the **GetLong(c4d.BFM_INPUT_X) and  ** GetLong(c4d.BFM_INPUT_Y)
But is there a way to get the projection XYZ coordinates in the ViewPort?

Thank you.

I hardly suggest you to read the documentation. Everything is explained.

what exactly is the context of your question? Are you working on a tool? Mouse coordinates are always just X and Y. What kind of Z coordinate are you looking for? The BaseView class includes various functions to transform coordinates across Screen-, Camera- and World space, e.g. BaseView.WS().
