Example

// Add a marker at click location in a Map control // (code to include in the click code of control) MyPosition is geoPosition MyPosition = MapInfoXY(MAP_Position, MouseXPos(), MouseYPos()) IF ErrorOccurred = False THEN MyMarker is Marker MyMarker..Position = MyPosition MapAddMarker(MAP_Position, MyMarker) END

Syntax

<Result> = MapInfoXY(<Map Control> , <X> , <Y>)

<Result>: geoPosition variable

geoPosition variable corresponding to the geographical position of the point on the map.

If an error occurred, the ErrorOccurred variable is set to True and the error details are returned by ErrorInfo.

<Map Control>: Character string (with or without quotes)

Name of Map control to use. If this parameter corresponds to an empty string (""), the Map control to which the current process belongs will be used.

<X>: Integer

X coordinate (in pixels) of point to study. This coordinate is relative to the top left corner of control. If this coordinate is negative, the position will be sought for a point that is not displayed on the map.

<Y>: Integer

Y coordinate (in pixels) of point to study. This coordinate is relative to the top left corner of control. If this coordinate is negative, the position will be sought for a point that is not displayed on the map.

Remarks

To retrieve the coordinates of a point in the Map control on which an event occurred (click for example):

The calculation of position takes into account the zoom level in the Map control during the call to the function. The higher the zoom level is, the more precise the position will be.
