ClickPane

ClickPane[image,func]

represents a clickable pane that displays as image and applies func to the coordinates of each click within the pane.

ClickPane[image,{{xmin,ymin},{xmax,ymax}},func]

specifies the range of coordinates to use.

Details and Options

  • The image in a click pane can be a graphic or any other expression.
  • For a Graphics object g, ClickPane[g,func] by default takes the range of coordinates supplied to func to be the range of graphics coordinates corresponding to PlotRange in g.
  • For a general expression, ClickPane[expr,func] takes the range of coordinates to be 0 to 1 in each direction.
