Function: vector llDetectedTouchST( integer index );

Returns a vector that is the surface coordinates for where the prim was touched. The x & y vector positions contain the horizontal (s) & vertical (t) face coordinates respectively (<s, t, 0.0>). Each component is in the interval [0.0, 1.0].

TOUCH_INVALID_TEXCOORD is returned when the surface coordinates cannot be determined. See Caveats for further details.

• integer index Index of detection information

index does not support negative indexes. For the touch category of events only. The prim that was touched may not be the prim receiving the event, use llDetectedLinkNumber to check for this; likewise you can use llDetectedTouchFace to determine which face was touched.


  • If index is out of bounds the script continues to execute without an error message.
  • TOUCH_INVALID_TEXCOORD is returned when...
    • The avatar's viewer does not support face touch detection.
    • The touch has moved off the surface of the prim.
    • The touch happened too close to the edge of the face to determine a location.
    • The event triggered is not a touch event.
