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.
|Panel Coordinates||Yes||A cluster of horizontal and vertical pairs that indicate the front panel coordinates.|
|Pane Coordinates||Yes||A cluster of horizontal and vertical pairs that indicate the pane coordinates.|
