I'm trying to build a plugin that firstly captures the map coordinates.
I have tried to adapt the map tool explained in this post: How to programatically check for a mouse click in QGIS
The code I used for the main function is below:
def canvasReleaseEvent(self, event): #Get the click x = event.pos().x() y = event.pos().y() canvas = self.canvas canvas.mapRenderer().setProjectionsEnabled(True) canvas.mapRenderer().setDestinationCrs(QgsCoordinateReferenceSystem(27700)) espg = canvas.mapRenderer().destinationCrs().authid() point = self.canvas.getCoordinateTransform().toMapCoordinates(x, y)
Unfortunately the when I print point it always returns as (0,0). I have tried various ways to set the crs of the points but none work. What needs to be done to make it work?
