G'day All,
How do I get the value returned by StatusArea as a Dynamic variable?


d = Partition[Partition[Range[512*8*8], 512], 8];
dims = Dimensions[d];
ds[x_, y_] := d[[x]][[y]];

     ListLinePlot[{Range[dims[[3]]], ds[#1, #2]} // Transpose,
      Axes -> False,
      Frame -> False,
      MaxPlotPoints -> 64,
      PlotRange -> {All, {0, 2^32}}
     {#1, #2}] &, {dims[[1]], dims[[2]]}

As you point with the mouse cursor on a line you should see the array 
co-ordinates in the status line of the notebook. So this works as 
expected on the grid, but I am at a loss as to how to propagate the 
StatusArea return to a Dynamic variable for future use. Any suggestions 
would be most helpful.
