Can arcade return the coordinates of a map click?

Hello.

My webmap has two polygon layers - a city boundaries layer on top and an annexation layer underneath.  I'm trying to show the specific annexations at a given map click location when just the City layer is visible on the map. And i want to display the annexations in the city boundaries layer popup.

i need the x,y coordinates of the map click in order to intersect with the Annexations layer. Is it possible to use Arcade to get the mouse click coordinates?

I can certainly use the maps default behavior to show the multiple popups of the city boundary layer and the annexation layer. Ideally, though, i'd like to have a single popup on the City layer to show the annexation information.

Thank you

@Trippetoe Are you trying to actually write those values to a table or just manually copy the coordinates?

I want to use the coordinates to create a point/geometry that i can then use to run an intersection against the Annexation layer. That will enable me to identify any annexations that encompassed that point (maybe thats the wrong word - maybe its 'included' that point). Anyway, looking for annexations that intersected the place where the use clicked the map. Again, i know that the native multiple popups sorta solves the problem for me, but i'd like to present the data for any intersecting annexations in a single popup.

Thank you

Thanks for your fast reply. Yes, i had seen that link. I was hopeful/wishing that with the updates to Arcade over the past year or so that the functionality had been added in, or some intrepid developer had stumbled on a workaround to get the info. 

As an aside, i didn't understand the suggestion made by DragoonHimself to use a point note feature layer. Do you know that was getting at?

This probably doesn't get what you want, but this type of functionality is in the Near Me widget in Experience Builder.
