Reading out X/Y numbers of the mouse

Hi Folks!

I’ve been working with max in school for only 9 months now, so please forgive me if I’m asking stupid questions..

Is there a way to read out the X/Y value of your mouse and have it come out in 2 seperate number boxes (or as a list)?

Thanks in advance.

Here is a handy XY mouse control I came up with.
