You can get the screen coordinates by the UI Event Handlers onMouseButtonDown, onMouseButtonUp, onMouseButtonClick, onMouseButtonDblClick.
The return Array is in 2-D, you can use it with all set-position commands.
_x = returnArray select 0; _y = returnArray select 1;

In VBS2 1.23 this command does not seem to work properly. Therefore when defining UI Event Handlers onMouseButtonClick and onMouseButtonDblClick the functions onMapSingleClick and onDoubleClick (VBS2) can be used instead, these already provide access to the world coordinates of the click event.
The command parameters are screen position coordinates, which may not equate to to the map control's coordinates. A map control's screen coordinates and size can be found use the ctrlPosition command. This is an issue when using the Arma 3 in-game map, which is not fullscreen (all previous titles used full screen map controls, so map control coords did equate to screen coords).
