RightTappedRoutedEventArgs.GetPosition(UIElement) RightTappedRoutedEventArgs.GetPosition(UIElement) RightTappedRoutedEventArgs.GetPosition(UIElement) RightTappedRoutedEventArgs.GetPosition(UIElement) Method

Definition

Returns the x- and y-coordinates of the pointer position, optionally evaluated against a coordinate origin of a supplied UIElement.

public : Point GetPosition(UIElement relativeTo)
Point GetPosition(UIElement relativeTo) const;
public Point GetPosition(UIElement relativeTo)
Public Function GetPosition(relativeTo As UIElement) As Point

Parameters

relativeTo
UIElement UIElement

Any UIElement -derived object that is connected to the same object tree. To specify the object relative to the overall coordinate system, use a relativeTo  value of null.

Returns

A Point that represents the current x- and y-coordinates of the mouse pointer position. If null was passed as relativeTo, this coordinate is for the overall window. If a relativeTo value other than null was passed, this coordinate is relative to the object referenced by relativeTo.

Remarks

Windows 8 behavior

Windows 8 had an issue with the data for the RightTapped event, where the X and Y values for the point you'd get from RightTappedRoutedEventArgs.GetPosition were reversed (X was really Y; Y was really X). This issue has been fixed starting with Windows 8.1. But if you're retargeting a Windows 8 app for Windows 8.1, you might have had code that worked around this issue by swapping the X and Y back. If so, remove that code when you retarget because the issue is now fixed.

Apps that were compiled for Windows 8 but running on Windows 8.1 continue to use the Windows 8 behavior.
