# Use a vertex in skRectangle()

Member, Developers Posts: 148 ✭✭✭
Hi, how could I use a vertex's coordinates as the "firstCorner" coordinates for an skRectangle() function? Am I right by thinking that it must be a 2d vector and I could get it since I am using evVertexPoint, I could use vertexPoint[0] etc., but that only works if the part is in the correct orientation?
Thanks

@ilya_baran How would I manipulate these coordinates to translate it horizontally or vertically?

Once you're in 2D, you should be able to add to the x coordinate to translate horizontally and to y to translate vertically.  Or did I misunderstand your question?

Well this is what I've written in the code
skRectangle(sketch1, "rectangle1", {
"firstCorner" : vector(width, -height),
"secondCorner" : worldToPlane(sketchplane, vertexPoint)
});
How could I separate the x and y coordinates of the secondCorner to translate the point?
