I have a simple mouse manager class: https://imgur.com/MuUhh73

Whenever any of the mouse buttons are pressed the mouse position does not update when calling getMouseX() or getMouseY() on the mouse manager object via a basic handler that gets passed everywhere.

Is the problem in my implementation or is it a bug in general?


The problem is with your implementation.

Change your button handling code to something like :

if (e.getButton() == MouseEvent.Button1) {
    leftpressed = true;
    mouseX = e.getX();
    mouseY = e.getY();

Basically you want to update the stored mouse position on all mouse events.
