you compare current position to 0,0 and maxx,maxy to see if you're still inside the boarder or not

you can't keep the mouse in the run window in turing (at least im pretty sure), but you can make it so it doesn't draw outside of the border:

if mousex >= maxx or mousex <= 0 or mousey >= maxy or mousey <= 0 then
don't draw anything
let the person draw something
end if

for whatdotcolor (since nonoen release explained)

draw a border around to outside..
drawbox (0,0,maxx,maxy,color of your choice)
if whatdotcolor (the position of the line) = the color above
U hit wall...
u can keep going

try to make that color of border something realy unique like maybe 155 or something... see my color chart HERE for full color list
