IMapServerLayout.ToPagePoints Method

Converts a screen location to a page coordinate.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Function ToPagePoints ( _
    ByVal pageExtent As IEnvelope, _
    ByVal pageDisplay As IImageDisplay, _
    ByVal screenXValues As ILongArray, _
    ByVal screenYValues As ILongArray _
) As IPointCollection
public IPointCollection ToPagePoints (
    IEnvelope pageExtent,
    IImageDisplay pageDisplay,
    ILongArray screenXValues,
    ILongArray screenYValues
HRESULT ToPagePoints(
  IEnvelope* pageExtent,
  IImageDisplay* pageDisplay,
  ILongArray* screenXValues,
  ILongArray* screenYValues
pageExtent [in]

pageExtent is a parameter of type IEnvelope* pageDisplay [in]
pageDisplay is a parameter of type IImageDisplay* screenXValues [in]
screenXValues is a parameter of type ILongArray* screenYValues [in]
screenYValues is a parameter of type ILongArray*

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.


Use ToPagePoints to convert pixel coordinates on the screen to page units coordinates on the layout.


The following sample code shows how to convert the lower left corner of your layout image (screen location) to page coordinates. It assumes that you already have a valid MapServerLayout and PageDescription object, and that you are not working with a server context. However, if you are developing an ArcGIS for Server application using a server context, you should not use New to create local ArcObjects, but you should always create objects within the server by calling CreateObject on IServerContext.

IMapServerLayout mapServerLayout;
IPageDescription pageDesc;

// Create image display
IImageDisplay imageDisp = new ImageDisplayClass();
imageDisp.Height = 550;
imageDisp.Width = 425;

// Get page extent
IEnvelope pageExtent = pageDesc.Extent ;

// Get screen location (lower left corner of image)
ILongArray screenXValues = new LongArrayClass();
ILongArray screenYValues = new LongArrayClass();
// Be aware that origin of screen coordinate system is upper left corner!

// Convert screen location to page coordinates
IPointCollection pointCollection;
pointCollection = mapServerLayout.ToPagePoints(pageExtent, imageDisp, screenXValues, screenYValues);
IPoint point = pointCollection.get_Point(0);

// Please note:
// 1. Origin of screen coordinate system is upper left corner
// 2. If aspect ratio of requested layout image is different from aspect ratio of
// input map layout, requested layout image will be adjusted to fit
// input map layout -> following screen locations are not necessarily 0:
