How to get coordinates/location where user clicked on the screen?


#1

Heres what I’m trying to do

If user clicks anywhere on the screen get where they clicked
then

if click was less then or equal to ~1.5 inches from left side of the screen do x
else do y

Basically like snapchat. If you click a few inches from the left it’ll go back a snap, but if you click anywhere else it’ll go to the next snap

How can I get the screen coordinates?

You can simpely get screen coordinates by an click.
This is an example:

home.html (as example)

<ion-content (click)="getCoordinates($event)">
     This is my main content
</ion-content>

home.ts (as example)

getCoordinates(event)
{
    // This output's the X coord of the click
    console.log(event.clientX);

    // This output's the Y coord of the click
    console.log(event.clientY);
}

I hope I helped you further with your project.
