The title says it all. I'm using GeoExt as part of OpenGeo Suite. I would like to display the current mouse coordinates.

Update: I was getting confused as to what parts of the code are GeoExt and which parts are OpenLayers.

var mapPanel = new GeoExt.MapPanel({

mapPanel.map.addControl(new OpenLayers.Control.MousePosition());
