point(

point(V

, H

)
The** point( **function combines vertical and horizontal co-ordinates into a single binary value that describes the position of a point (see Graphic Coordinates).

**Parameters**

This function has two parameters:

** v** – is the vertical position of the point. All dimensions are in points (1 points =1/72 inch).

** h** – is the horizontal position of the point.

**Description**

The procedure below displays a message if you manage to click on a spot exactly 50 points from the top of the screen and 100 points from the left edge of the screen.

```
if info("click") = point(50,100)
message "You hit the secret spot!"
else
beep
endif
```

- v( -- returns the vertical position of a point (see point(, Graphic Coordinates).

Version | Status | Notes |

10.0 | Updated | Carried over from Panorama 6.0, but *V* and *H* parameters can now be floating point values, not just integers. The result is now a binary value, not an intenger. |
