Description

Procedure GetOrigin returns the current origin location relative to the center of the page.
PROCEDURE GetOrigin(
VAR x  :REAL;
VAR y  :REAL);
def vs.GetOrigin():
    return (x, y)

Parameters

x REAL Returns X coordinate of origin.
y REAL Returns Y coordinate of origin.

Remarks

(Orso, 2015.05.31):

For many years this function failed to return the origin shift when used from within plug-in objects (tested up to VW 2009).This is not the case any longer. At least since VW 2011 it returns the origin shift both from within PIOs and from Commands.

Objects inside Symbols use the reverse of the User Origin. I added a table of the values related to VectorScript origin in the article Absolute Origin, by Gerard Jonker, on VectorLab.

Example

VectorScript

PROCEDURE Example;
VAR
originPt : VECTOR;
BEGIN
GetOrigin(originPt.x, originPt.y);
Message(originPt);
END;
RUN(Example);

Python

def Example():
	originPtX, originPtY = vs.GetOrigin()
	vs.Message(originPtX, originPtY);
Example()
