Instance Method

convertPoint:fromView:

Converts a point from the coordinate system of a given view to that of the view.

Declaration

- (NSPoint)convertPoint:(NSPoint)point fromView:(NSView *)view;

Parameters

aPoint

A point specifying a location in the coordinate system of aView.

aView

The view with aPoint in its coordinate system. Both aView and the view must belong to the same NSWindow object, and that window must not be nil. If aView is nil, this method converts from window coordinates instead.

Return Value

The point converted to the coordinate system of the view.
