Results Edit

frameID 
Table - The frame that currently has the mouse focus. *NOTE: This can momentarily return nil if GetMouseFocus() is called when selecting "Inspect" on another player. This is likely an API bug in 4.1+.

You can get the name of the mouse-enabled frame beneath the pointer with this:

message( "The mouse is over " .. GetMouseFocus():GetName() );

Result Edit

The mouse is over WorldFrame
