  I'm not sure if you're looking for mouse position events only, or
also various types of pick events, but I'd suggest having a look at
the VMD Tcl callback demo script I've attached to this email for examples
of how to catch callbacks. See the VMD User's Guide for the list of
available callbacks and their meaning.

There are some other callbacks for special mouse events and
spaceball 6DOF position data that you can capture as well, but
I'm guessing you're mostly interested in the simple ones that are
well documented in the User's Guide.
