XYPosition is a lightweight application for getting positions on the screen. It shows the position of the mouse cursor in the menu bar. You can change the origin to Top left or to bottom right.

To copy coordinates to the clipboard, simple press the hotkey combination cmd+Return. That copies the position to the clipboard with the format e.g. x:993 y:498.

To set the origin to the cursor location, just press cmd+right arrow. If you set the origin, you switch to size modus and pressing the hotkey combination cmd+Return will copy the origin and the size to the clipboard e.g. x:656 y:466 h:30 w:35. You can change the more...

Sorry for all the comment entries here. MacUpdate was giving me fits telling me that something was "undefined" when I submitted those comments. I assumed that the comment didn't get posted. Clearly they did. :) And apparently, I can't delete them myself.

App has root level access!? I don't like applications that don't install correctly. The app should not have permissions set to "system". That is reserved for Apple and the Mac App Store.

(OK, MacUpdate seems to have issues of it's own. I told it to post a "troubleshooting" entry at first, but it wound up posting a review. This comment is correct and MU gave me the option to set the kind of comment. ... Weird)

I will change my Overall Rating when the application's install has been changed to not install the app as "system".

This is a Beta release and some things need still improvement.

Carsten, it may be that the app is a beta, but installing it with "root" or "system" permissions scares folks like me who are very concerned about viruses and malicious programs.

I'm sorry if the comment came off strong, but as someone who has been bit by both a phone based phishing scam and someone who got a tweet from a Twitter friend I trusted who was recently hacked. I take these things very serious and worry very much about them.

I will keep the application in my Watch List here and check out future updates, but if I may make a string suggestion. Please update your applications install script to install the application with the correct permissions so that users like myself won't get freaked out when they see the permissions set to "system". Thanks.

I understand your concerns and will correct the permissions.

No luck fixing the permissions issue with the installer? The program still installs with "system" and "wheel" instead of "dave (Me)" and "admin".

I would really love to use the app, but I just can't with incorrect permissions.

Just wonderin', why would I need my cursor's screen coordinates???
A little enlightenment, please.
I guess that I'm just too dense to figure it out...the reason must be quite esoteric.

You would need it, if you need the position and the size of windows on your screen. As you might figured, not everyone would need it :)
