Translating from request.getLocation() to container coordinates [message #175625] Tue, 05 April 2005 17:06 Go to next message

Hi Everyone,

When the user clicks on a container figure with a creation tool my
policy receives a request who's location is set to the viewer
coordinates. What's the best way to translate the request.getLocation()
position to the container figure location?

Regards,
Angel

Thanks for the answer. It led me to the function I needed which is
translateFromParent().
