Converting y to price with TS

Hi all, I am writing a TS program that responds to mouse clicks. I need to know the price at which the user clicked the price chart. I have the code that responds to mouse clicks. It generally receives the x/y coordinates and those need to be translated to price.

The code below almost works. The problem is that the clientWindow.Height includes the height of the main price sub graph as well as any other panels I have on (MACD or what not). I need to access the height of the main price panel or perhaps someone has anothe approach as to how to convert y coordinates to price?

 
Code
Using elsystem;
Using elsystem.collections;
Using elsystem.xml;
Using elsystem.io;
Using elsystem.windows.forms;
Using elsystem.drawing;
Using tsdata.common;
Using tsdata.trading;
Using platform;
Using charting;


Vars:
ChartingHost ch(NULL), price(0);

// Method called on AnalysisTechnique Initialized event.
// The sender parameter identifies the object that fires the event.
// The args parameter contains additional information about the event.
// NOTE:  Do not modify the method name, return type, or input parameters.

Method void AnalysisTechnique_Initialized( elsystem.Object sender, elsystem.InitializedEventArgs args ) 
begin
	{ Insert your EasyLanguage statements below }
	Print("AnalysisTechnique_Initialized");
	ch = ChartingHost.Create();
	
	ch.ChartElementClick += ChartingHost1_ChartElementClick;
end;



Method double ConvertYToPrice(int y)
Var: double highDisplay, double lowDisplay, double chartscale, double percentage, double clickPrice;
Begin
	highDisplay = Getappinfo(Aihighestdispvalue);
	lowDisplay = Getappinfo(Ailowestdispvalue);
	
	percentage = y / ch.ClientWindow.Height;
	clickPrice = highDisplay - (highDisplay - lowDisplay) * percentage;
	
        // next, round to tick size	

	Return 0;

end;


Method void ChartingHost1_ChartElementClick( elsystem.Object sender, charting.ChartElementClickEventArgs args )
begin
	If (args.Button  = MouseButton.Right) then
		Return;
	
	price  = ConvertYToPrice(args.Y);
			
end;

For anyone interested, I think I found the solution....

elsystem.InitializedEventArgs args has an attribute called DataStreamValue which returns the price on which the user clicked.

so it looks like: args.DataStreamValue

You can test that the price is between Getappinfo(Aihighestdispvalue); and Getappinfo(Ailowestdispvalue); and determine that the user clicked on the price chart and not on some other panel.

forward2012,

can you elaborate what exactly is not working for you? I suspect that you need to include the solution @onnb pointed out in his second post for the code to work.

Regards,
ABCTG

I took the code and attempted to run it. Nothing is happening. I was hoping it will show me the price on the chart or log, nope. I want to to get the price after I click on the chart, with that price I wanted to buy or sell a security. That is what I am attempting to do. If you know, it will be great show me some example or sample code.
