No

The code for positioning the auto-complete window is win32 only at the moment - there is no (known) way to get at the caret position on macos or linux.

    Interesting =) i started looking into the linux side, looks straight forward.

    Well, ive made a TextAreaCursorXY and made it work in win32 atleast.
    The code for linux is mostly done, but untested (coding in linux in a vm isnt fun ;)

    But i was wonder what would be best to return, Screen or Client coordinates?

    I reckon client co-ordinates are probably best (and probably what you'll be given by most OS's / GUI's). The user can easily work out the screen position by adding the gadget x,y.

    hmm.. but arent gadget X,Y client coords?
    If so youd have to trace each parent.

    Anyway, i posted the Win32 tweak to the blitz forum.
    and im working on the linux one now, but it seems the position_to_xy is protected :/
    which means FLTK itself has to be modified.

    Priority dropped as we will have our own codearea soon which will be able to provide x,y of cursor across all platforms
