D3v6 get g element position



I am trying to retrieve the x, y position for the “g” element of the nodes. As provided in the screenshot a browser inspector gets the transform="translate(x,y)" values and I want to return those in a console.log too. To do so I added a .on("click", getPosition) function and tried different approaches. Unfortunately the official D3.js API removed d3.transform without any replacement explanation.

What I am hoping to get from stackoverflow is a practical example, as I am lost.

Answer

This code works:

function getPosition(event, d) {
  const element = d3.select(this);
  const val = element.attr('transform').split(/[s,()]+/);
  const x = parseFloat(val[1]);
  const y = parseFloat(val[2]);
  console.log(x, y)
}

You can see it in a fiddle
