Get coordinates of tap when button tapped

I thought this would be a simple Google search! All I want is the X,Y position of the tap when the user taps a button. I want to find out where in the button the user tapped (high or low) so I can position a symbol in the correct spot relative to where the user tapped.

Your my hero of the day if you have the answer (not a hack!).

When I googled “get position of tap swiftui” this article came up, which looks like what you want.

Also this article Get tap location in SwiftUI.

Thank you so much for the response. I did see these articles, unfortunately this works great for shapes but not for a Button. I cannot seem to find a solution that works for a button. I thought that tracking tap position would be a fundamental system function available all the time.

This makes sense cause a large majority of the time, it doesn’t matter where the button is, but only that it was tapped.

You are going to have to make a custom button most likely, meaning make a shape and add a tap gesture

I believe you are right. Thanks again for the second opinion!
