How do I get my coordinates to show (But there's math this time)

Question: When logging, I don’t get any coords. How would I go about fixing this?

Repl link

<script type="text/javascript" src="glwindow.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        let cvs = document.querySelector("#viewport-canvas");
	    let glwindow = new GLWindow(cvs);
        cvs.addEventListener('mousemove', function (e) {
            pos ={
                x: e.clientX,
                y: e.clientY
            document.getElementById("x-value").textContent = pos.x;
            document.getElementById("y-value").textContent = pos.y;

above this file, you can use ctrl + f and type in click inside glwindow.js to find the function that should be returning coordinates.

Sorry for making this the 3rd question about this project.

The repl is private, idk if that’s how you wanted it to be.
Now knowing what glwindow.js looks like, I can’t help you any further

Did the link not work?

I saw someone join it…

I just made the entire thing public.

e is not defined, as the Console (CtrlJ) would complain.

event is supposed to be e. Even so, it still doesn’t work.

Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'x')

The link now works but points at a Go repl with what seems to be a hello world program.

Considering the error message, it might be possible that doesn’t return anything.
Perhaps consider changing this

document.getElementById("x-value").textContent = pos.x;
document.getElementById("y-value").textContent = pos.y;

into this

document.getElementById("x-value").textContent = e.clientX;
document.getElementById("y-value").textContent = e.clientY;

(re-use the variable e’s attributes)


And also,


I’m sorry, what does this mean?

As for the undefined-s, you will still log undefined because, as said before, it seems like is not returning anything (hence pos will be given a value of undefined).

What should return? Can I have a look at the code?

That’s how you locate what I’m referring to.

Go inside the folder place → Folder web → folder root → file desktop.html

Click isn’t returning anything and that’s the problem.

I think I found the problem. Line 168 in glwindow.js, you are returning nothing if a certain condition is met.
Where is that math coming from? Double check it

Also sorry for being rude before, I didn’t properly understand

I’m going to do what is called “a pro gamer move” and quit working on coordinates. I can’t get it to work inside that environment, but can inside previous environments.
