Re: Re: How show Locator point and its image under a function?


Oops, I missed the Point wrapper for the image points.  Thanks.

And now LocatorAutoCreate -> All in the LocatorPane also satisfies the 
additional requirement I stated in a follow-up to my original post: 
allow multiple locator points to be created on the fly and their images 
automatically to be shown.

   f[{x_, y_}] := {2 x + 1, y + 2}

   DynamicModule[{pts = {{0, 0}}},
     Row[{
       LocatorPane[Dynamic[pts], Graphics[{}, PlotRange -> 5],
         LocatorAutoCreate -> All],
       Graphics[Dynamic[Point /@ f /@ pts], PlotRange -> 5]
     }]
   ]
