A Control element that returns X and Y coordinates of touch or mouse click

The control could be an existing control (image, canvas, card, ...) or a new control that is transparent and intercepts the click or touch event (pen?) and provides the coordinates of the click with respect to the top-left corner of the control's visual.

Good idea. Maybe this could simply be a signal:

 Yes, and fully featured too e.g. a signal where the hover or click x, y location is transmitted, naming the control on which it is, the relative x, y on that control as well as absolute on that screen, a payload of helpful stuff, etc. etc.


Just nick the fully featured functionality from someone else's product - you normally do MS.

Still not possible?


I could really use this.............

Perhaps the new PCF JavaScript control development in canvas apps will provide a solution to this?  If this framework has access to the browser environment to get a click x, y location inside the developed control, or something like that?

Still needing this to migrate my company apps from Appsheet to PowerApps, I can't use PA now because of the lack of location in indoor multi level plants.

Could really do with this supported natively within PA, rather than relying on a PCF. 

The admin of our environment disabled the ability to load PCFs into it, so I can't use them.

Desperately need this, tried making a custom interactive map and found that once a gallery reaches around 800 objects on a screen any i Pads running it will close that screen and go back to the last or crash power apps all together. This would be a great way to get around the soft cap of controls on a screen.
