Map MouseMoveEvent to display other coordinate formats in the status bar

Discussion created by dsiders on Apr 3, 2013
I am trying to access a map MouseMoveEvent, if there is one that exists. What I am trying to do is to display the coordinates of the mouse in coordinates other than the ones displayed in the status bar of ArcMap (default decimal degrees) with out extending the Tools Class.

I know a user can simply change this setting through the Customize Menu > ArcMap Options > Data View Tab > Coordinates Displayed in Status Bar, but my requirements are to do it programmatically.

I have found away to get the mouse coordinates using the MxDocument.CurrentLocation() method. What I would like to do is have a OnMouseMove or MouseMove event that fires when the mouse moves over the Map Frame. Does one exist outside of extending the Tools Class?
