Short Name: CvtPaneToPanelCoords

Requires: Base Development System

Class: Pane Methods

To Use: Create a method.

Converts the input point from the local pane coordinates to the coordinates of the front panel as the output point.

The pane coordinates are relative to the pane origin. The front panel coordinates are relative to the top left of the window. You can use this method to compare the position of two objects on different panes. Before the conversion, the object coordinates are relative to different origins, but after the conversion, the converted coordinates are all relative to the same position on the front panel.
