Use the [[x]] and [[y]] properties to access and manipulate the position of widgets. Learn how to move one widget to the x and y coordinates of another widget.
- [Narrator] Every widget in Axure…has an X and a Y coordinate…based on the position of that widget on the canvas.…We can click on any one of our widgets…and see its X and Y coordinates here in the style panel.…And if we open up the widget variable section…by selecting one of our actions…and then clicking on the function button,…we can see that each one of our widgets…also has an X and a Y property here.…So we'll be able to access those same X and Y coordinates…that we see in the style panel using variables.…We can use these X and Y properties to move widgets around…based on the position of other widgets on our canvas.…
To get an idea of how this works,…let's move this circle over here on the right…over to the X and Y coordinates of the square on the left.…I'll click on our button here and select the OnClick event.…I'll select our "move" action and select our circle here.…I'm going to select move "to"…because we want to move it to a specific set of coordinates.…We want to move it to the X and Y coordinates of our square.…
