I'm having a lot of trouble getting the row and column from a x, y coordinate on the screen. I've written an algorithm to get the x, y coordinate of a specified row and column but I can't get the reverse of this.



Here is the algorithm for the row/column to x/y:

Java Code:
public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e)
{
	int x = e.getX();
	int y = e.getY();
	int[] coords = DC.XYToCoords(x, y);
	int r = coords[0];
	int c = coords[1];
	System.out.println(r + " " + c);
}
Java Code:
public int[] coordsToXY(int r, int c)
{
	int totalRows = world.getTotalRows();
	int totalColumns = world.getTotalColumns();
	int width = (totalRows + totalColumns) * (tileWidth/2);
	int height = (totalRows + totalColumns) * (tileHeight/2);
		
	//	Offset by Column     Offset by Row
	int y = c*(tileHeight/2) + r*(tileHeight/2); 
		
	//	Offset by Column   Offset by Row    Offset by Isometric    Center of Tile
	int x = c*(tileWidth/2) - r*(tileWidth/2)    +    width/2    -      tileWidth/2;
		
	int[] xy = new int[2];
	xy[0] = x;
	xy[1] = y;
		
	return xy;
}
I will show you how I've done the reverse but it isn't going to aid you specifically with the original problem but it may give you an idea.

Viewport gets calculates the starting x and y (sX, sY) of what a user could see so the display doesn't print useless unseen pixels.

Java Code:
public void reloadView()
{
	int row = target.getRow();
	int column = target.getColumn();
	int yW = target.getWidth();
	int yH = target.getHeight();
	int tW = DC.getTileWidth();
	int tH = DC.getTileHeight();
	int totalRows = DC.getWorld().getTotalRows();
	int width = DC.getClientWidth();
	int height = DC.getClientHeight();
	boolean flipped = target.isFlipped();
		
	int centerX = width/2;
	int centerY = height/2;
		
	int[] xy = DC.coordsToXY(row, column);
	int x = xy[0];
	int y = xy[1];
		
	sX = (x-centerX)+(yW/2);
	sY = (y-centerY)+(yH+tH)-(totalRows/2*tH);
}
Here is the actual draw method. It doesn't do much but you can see how I use the viewport and where I call the coordToXY() method.

Java Code:
public void draw()
{
	//Get appropriate variables
	PlayerManager PManager = DC.getPlayerManager();
	Viewport viewport = DC.getViewport();
	World world = DC.getWorld();
	int width = DC.getClientWidth();
	int height = DC.getClientHeight();
		
	viewport.reloadView();
		
	int sX = viewport.getSX();
	int sY = viewport.getSY();
		
	//Get this graphic object
	Graphics2D g = (Graphics2D)this.getGraphics();
	
	//We will be drawing everything to this for one quick draw action
	BufferedImage img = new BufferedImage(width, height, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_ARGB);
	Graphics2D g2 = (Graphics2D)img.getGraphics();
		
	//Clear screen
	g2.clearRect(0, 0, width, height);
		
	BufferedImage worldImage = world.getImage();
	BufferedImage playersImage = PManager.getImage();
	g2.drawImage((Image)worldImage, 0, 0, width, height, sX, sY, sX+width, sY+height, null);
	//g2.drawImage((Image)playersImage, 0, 0, width, height, sX, sY, sX+width, sY+height, null);
		
	//Now draw everything to the screen once.
	g.drawImage((Image)img, 0, 0, null);
}
Thanks for any help anyone can give me!
