Method translateTo: point
Last updated at 12:29 pm UTC on 3 July 2018
Receivers of #translateTo:

 translateTo: point
       "do nothing is the default action"

Only two subclasses of MorphicEvent have overrides

      translateTo: point

	    position := point.

     translateTo: point

	    position := point.

The message #translateTo: is a simpler version of #transformedBy:, which was added back in 2000.

Basically, these are helper methods to cope with local coordinate systems in TransformMorphs.

It is only used in MorphicEventDispatcher.

The term "translate" means geometry like in Rectangle.

No morph should ever receive this message, only MorphicEvent (sub-)instances.
