p5js-screenPosition

screenPosition-Cover

This function provides a solution to the missing screenX and screenY functions in p5.js. See https://github.com/processing/p5.js/issues/1553 for the discussion.

This is work in progress.

As far as I could find out there should be anything implemented to make it work perfectly in any mode (2D, WEBGL, angleMode DEGREES or RADIANS, normal or instance mode). If you'll find a case that isn't working correctly, please file an issue.

Usage

For a quick look on what it's doing see https://editor.p5js.org/bohnacker/sketches/nUk3bVW7b.

1. Download

Download the latest release of addScreenPositionFunction.js.

2. Use it in your project

Link to it in your HTML file. It's only working in combination with p5.js.

<script src="p5.js"></script>
<script src="addScreenPositionFunction.js"></script>

3. Initializing

Call the function addScreenPositionFunction() after creating the canvas.

function setup() {
  createCanvas(400, 400);
  addScreenPositionFunction();
}

If your using p5.js in instance mode you have to pass the instance:

p.setup = function() {
  p.createCanvas(400, 400);
  addScreenPositionFunction( p );
};

Quite similar if you want to use the function with offscreen graphics:

graphics = createGraphics(400, 400);
addScreenPositionFunction( graphics );

4. Getting the screen position

Now you can use screenPosition(x, y, [z]) to get the position of a coordinate on screen. It returns a p5.Vector.

var p = screenPosition(-100, 50, 0);

Or giving a p5.Vector:

var v = createVector(-100, 50, 0)
var p = screenPosition( v );

Or giving an array with x, y, z coordinates:

var v = [-100, 50, 0];
var p = screenPosition( v );

Acknowledgements

Thanks to Thibault Coppex (@tcoppex) for the 3d-modelview-projection-math he supplied in the issue discussion thread (https://github.com/processing/p5.js/issues/1553). I had to adjust it a bit maybe because p5js changed the way webgl is handled since 2016.
