#include "graphics.h"
int mousey(void);
The mousey function is available in the winbgim implementation of BGI graphics. It returns the most recent y coordinate of the mouse within the graphics window. Y-coordinates start with 0 at the top edge of the window and increase to getmaxy( ) at the bottom edge of the window.

Return Value
Most recent y coordinate of the mouse within the graphics window
