This article shows how to get the geolocation of the user's mouse click.

The code example sets up an Event Listener on the click event of the Map Display. The x and y pixel values are extracted from evt.displayX and evt.displayY and converted to geo.Coordinates. Remember to add in your own AppId and Token to get the example to work.

function setUpClickListener(map){
/* Attach an event listener to map display
* obtain the coordinates an display in an alert box.
*/

map.addListener("click", function (evt) {
var coord = map.pixelToGeo(evt.displayX, evt.displayY);
alert("Clicked at " + coord);
});
}
