Hi

Is it possible to move an object to the exact position where a person taps? I want to add waypoints to a map?

Regards

Sure - just create an "On Tap" + "Move" event. For the position to move, select 'Calculated' and then drag a cursor constant into the open space in the expression.

Thank you! It works well, except for the fact that it seems to have an offset to the right of where I am clicking? Or it ends up just to the right of the circle?


One more thing, is it possible to create (or place) a new object every time I click on a new position?

We can add another part to the expression to make it move to the center. After the CX/CY just add a '-' and then half the value of the circle's width/height. For example, for a 60x60 circle, it will be CX - 30 and CY - 30.

For your other question, yes, but you will need to have each possible point already created on that screen, but not visible. Check out the attached prototype to see how this works.
