could you gently confirm that there's no way to retrieve the x,y data (that the Info Palette is constantly showing while mousing around the image), not to mention the "live" eyedropper as well?
To the best of my knowledge that is still the case.
What are you intending to use that information for?
Still wondering how to build a better info palette in photoshop (CS SDK + ESTK). It would be nice to avoid the color samplers workaround and access the original info palette numbers.
I concur, it would be great to be able to access the »cursor-feed« (or whatever it is poperly called).
But maybe someone else has more insight into the issue than me.
