MOUSEINPUT_TIMEOUT returns continuous mouse locations with timeout
OUT = MOUSEINPUT_TIMEOUT returns the sequence of mouse locations between a button press and a button release in the current axes. It does not timeout. OUT is an Nx2 matrix, where OUT(1,:) is the location at button press and OUT(END,:) is the location at button release.
OUT = MOUSEINPUT_TIMEOUT(T) times out after a period of T seconds. T can be a fractional value (T=inf indicates no timeout). If the mouse-button has not been pressed during that time, OUT is . If the timeout occurs during a mouse movement, OUT contains the mouse locations before the timeout.
OUT = MOUSEINPUT_TIMEOUT(T,AH) records the mouse movement from the axes specified by axes handle AH.
Note: MOUSEINPUT_TIMEOUT differs from GINPUT in two ways.
(1) It does not return information about which mouse button was pressed,
(2) It ignores key presses.
% record movements from current axes
% (with timeout after 4.5 sec), and
% plot the final movement.
out = mouseinput_timeout(4.5, gca);
out(1,:) % location at button-press
out(end,:) % location at button-release
