# Display coordinates of pointing device in VectorPlot

I want to show the coordinates of the (mouse) pointing device as I move the pointing device over the VectorPlot without a (right or left) click. I have tried ToolTip and MousePosition but I cannot get either to work for me. The code below is pared down version based on a suggestion from Belisarius:

Manipulate[

sol[t_, t0_, x0_] :=
x[t] /. First[
NDSolve[{x'[t] + x[t] == 0, x[t0] == x0}, x[t], {t, -2, 2}]];

ClickPane[
Show[ Plot[g, {t, -2, 2}, PlotRange -> 1, Frame -> True], sf,
Epilog -> {PointSize[Large], Point[sp]}],

(AppendTo[g, sol[t, #[[1]], #[[2]]]]; {t0, x0} = #;
AppendTo[sp, #]) &],

Initialization :> {(g = {}; sp = {}; {x0, t0} = {-1, -1}),

sf := VectorPlot[{1, -x}, {t, -2, 2}, {x, -1, 1},
VectorPoints -> 17, VectorScale -> {0.03, Automatic, None},
PerformanceGoal -> “Speed”]}
]

I realize that I need to use Dynamic but the ClickPane seems to mess me up. I need to maintain the functionality of saving the “clicked solutions.”

xp[t_, r_, t0_, x0_] := x[t] /.
First[NDSolve[{x'[t] + r x[t] == 0, x[t0] == x0}, x[t], {t, 0, 10}]];

Manipulate[
ClickPane[ Plot[g, {t, 0, 10}, PlotRange -> 1, Frame -> True,
PlotLabel -> Dynamic[MousePosition[“Graphics”]],
Epilog -> {PointSize[Large], Point[sp]}],
(AppendTo[g, xp[t, r, #]]; AppendTo[sp, #]) &],

{{r, 1, “r”}, -10, 10, 0.01, ImageSize -> Tiny, Appearance -> “Labeled”},
Button[“clear”, {g = {}; sp = {}}, ImageSize -> {40, 20}],
Initialization :> (g = {}; sp = {})]

@MarcoB Thanks! I ran the code from the other answer, and you know … lingering definitions 🙂

@MarcoB Nice! I will add your PlotLabel to the original code .
