Get x,y Co-ordinates on Pointer Press In WinStore XAML/C# App

    Question

  • I want to get x,y co-ordinates of pointer pressed (mouse/pen/touch) in a Windows Store Blank XAML/C# app. I know how to do this in WinForms, but unfortunately Pointer and Controls Classes are not same in WinStore Apps. Looked through several articles, but I found them all in WinForms.

    I guess it would help you;

        private void Grid_PointerPressed(object sender, PointerRoutedEventArgs e)
            {
                e.GetCurrentPoint(MyButton);
            }

  • Hi,

    You can use GetCurrentPoint which is the method of PointerRoutedEventArgs that comes to your event handler. And if you pass in a control as a parameter, it will give you the Point of interaction relative to the control:

    Here is an example event handler:

          private void Image_PointerPressed_1(object sender, PointerRoutedEventArgs e)
            {
                Point p = e.GetCurrentPoint(sender as Image).Position;
                XCoord.Text = p.X.ToString();
                YCoord.Text = p.Y.ToString();
            }
        }
    Best Wishes!
