Every mouse event got its coordinates attached. Of course, if the user sets the mouse to touchscreen-like, you won't receive any mouse move events while the button is not pressed and that's entirely by design.

Before I even consider this, please show your use case.

A menu like this where you can move the mouse to, for example, one edge of the screen and have it 'mouse' over so the menu can scroll up, down, left or right through menus.

I.e. if you move the mouse close enough to the top, bottom, left or right, one can essentially use this for scrolling.

Also some menus have effects where if the mouse comes closer to certain buttons, the buttons will grow larger/smaller based on position.

You get all relevant info through the MouseEvent function. But since you can set the menu to touchscreen-like I definitely won't add features that only work with hovering. These will break at the latest when the mod gets eventually played on a touchscreen device.
