I am trying to populate ever point's x,y when a point is created by a mouse click or clicking. Some times i might only create one point but sometimes i may have to create more then one. I am having trouble populating the x,y of the new created points.


this is currently what i have. I know it's wrong. i would like to see how to do this correctly.


getting error at
