Show Pointer Location

Hi in windows XP there is an option for showing mouse pointer locations.
If this option is selected when we press ctrl key it will show the animated circles.

Can some one guide me how can I add similar functionality to windows with difference like I want to show a circle of any radius at mouse location on pressing a key can be ctrl.

Regards

    Assuming you know Win32 programming: catch WM_MOUSEMOVE, check the state of the Ctrl key, if it is pressed then store the coords and set some flag, check this flag from WM_PAINT and draw a circle based on the coordinates.
