I am developing an add-in for ArcMap 10.0 where I need to execute code when there is a click on the map open. How do I do this? I am using VB in Visual Studio 2010. I also need to get the coordinates from the click event.
If you have created an add-in and added a ESRI.ArcGIS.Desktop.AddIns.Tool to it then stub out the following event:
Protected Overrides Sub OnMouseDown(ByVal arg As ESRI.ArcGIS.Desktop.AddIns.Tool.MouseEventArgs) ' --write your function here-- End Sub
arg.Y will be the coordinates where the user clicked.
You will most likely want to convert the x and y values to the transformation used by the display:
Dim mxDoc As IMxDocument = CType(My.ArcMap.Application.Document, IMxDocument) Dim clickedPoint As ESRI.ArcGIS.Geometry.IPoint = mxDoc.ActiveView.ScreenDisplay.DisplayTransformation.ToMapPoint(arg.X, arg.Y)
