I've done some forum and google searching, and found some info that I couldn't quite wrap my head around.

If I have an ellipse drawn into [lcd ], how do I go about calculating its centre point, and the mouse proximity to this point, and test for a mouse-over of just the ellipse, not including its "surrounding rectangle".

All the calculations I found made vague sense, but it's been such a long time since I had to do any that the solution is escaping me! Is this a situation where [cartopol ] might help?

Cheers, I know this isn't going to be remotely complex for many people :P
