<p>The mouse functions can be used to get the current state of the mouse device.
These functions can also alter the system cursor for the mouse.</p>
<p>When the display mode is set, the event queue will start receiving mouse
events. The mouse buttons generate <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">pygame.MOUSEBUTTONDOWN</span></tt> and
<tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">pygame.MOUSEBUTTONUP</span></tt> events when they are pressed and released. These
events contain a button attribute representing which button was pressed. The
mouse wheel will generate <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">pygame.MOUSEBUTTONDOWN</span></tt> and
<tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">pygame.MOUSEBUTTONUP</span></tt> events when rolled. The button will be set to 4
when the wheel is rolled up, and to button 5 when the wheel is rolled down.
Anytime the mouse is moved it generates a <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">pygame.MOUSEMOTION</span></tt> event. The
mouse movement is broken into small and accurate motion events. As the mouse
is moving many motion events will be placed on the queue. Mouse motion events
that are not properly cleaned from the event queue are the primary reason the
event queue fills up.</p>
<p>If the mouse cursor is hidden, and input is grabbed to the current display the
mouse will enter a virtual input mode, where the relative movements of the
mouse will never be stopped by the borders of the screen. See the functions
<tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">pygame.mouse.set_visible()</span></tt> and <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">pygame.event.set_grab()</span></tt> to get this
configured.</p>

<div class="line"><span class="signature">get_pressed() -&gt; (button1, button2, button3)</span></div>
</div>
<p>Returns a sequence of booleans representing the state of all the mouse
buttons. A true value means the mouse is currently being pressed at the time
of the call.</p>
<p>Note, to get all of the mouse events it is better to use either</p>
<div class="highlight-python"><pre>pygame.event.wait() or pygame.event.get() and check all of those events</pre>
</div>
<p>to see if they are <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">MOUSEBUTTONDOWN</span></tt>, <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">MOUSEBUTTONUP</span></tt>, or
<tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">MOUSEMOTION</span></tt>.</p>
<p>Note, that on <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">X11</span></tt> some XServers use middle button emulation. When you
click both buttons 1 and 3 at the same time a 2 button event can be emitted.</p>
<p>Note, remember to call <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">pygame.event.get()</span></tt> before this function.
Otherwise it will not work.</p>

<p>Returns true when pygame is receiving mouse input events (or, in windowing
terminology, is &#8220;active&#8221; or has the &#8220;focus&#8221;).</p>
<p>This method is most useful when working in a window. By contrast, in
full-screen mode, this method always returns true.</p>
<p>Note: under <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">MS</span></tt> Windows, the window that has the mouse focus also has the
keyboard focus. But under X-Windows, one window can receive mouse events and
another receive keyboard events. <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">pygame.mouse.get_focused()</span></tt> indicates
whether the pygame window receives mouse events.</p>

<p>When the mouse cursor is visible, it will be displayed as a black and white
bitmap using the given bitmask arrays. The size is a sequence containing the
cursor width and height. Hotspot is a sequence containing the cursor hotspot
position. xormasks is a sequence of bytes containing the cursor xor data
masks. Lastly is andmasks, a sequence of bytes containting the cursor
bitmask data.</p>
<p>Width must be a multiple of 8, and the mask arrays must be the correct size
for the given width and height. Otherwise an exception is raised.</p>
<p>See the <tt class="docutils literal"><span class="pre">pygame.cursor</span></tt> module for help creating default and custom masks
