## Question:How to make this Embedded Component- based app to work?

Maple

Hi,

Here is my first attempt to work with Embedded Components.
I loaded the "Bezier curve" example ("how to drag points") and the "Linear Regression" one ("how to add points") from the MathApps, merge the codes and modified them in order to draw a polygon with an arbitrary number of sides.

After many unsuccessful attempts I begin to understand the mogic behind Embedded Components (I'm familiar with Maplets and I'm sure this didn't help me).
For now , I am able to define points, drag them, and erase everything. A small step for Mankind but a huge step for me.

What I would like to do now is to erase some points.
The basic code is

```# Plot1 is the PlotComponent
# The list of the points is pt
#
# x0 and y0 are the co-ordinates of the point to remove from pt
# _removing is the number of the point in pt closest to (x0, y0)
#
# Update is the procedure which does the plot in Plot1

Remove := proc()
x0 := DO(%Plot1( "clickx" ) );
y0 := DO(%Plot1( "clicky" ) );
d := map(n -> add((pt[n]-~[x0, y0])^~2), [\$1..nops(pt)]):
_removing := sort(d, output=permutation)[1];
subsop(_removing=NULL, pt);
Update();
end proc;```

Unfortunately I don't understand well enough the logic of  Embedded Components to make this work

Can you help me fix this?
TIA

PS: In procedure Update I define two plots named fond (=background) and grille (=grid): grille is a workaround to "toggle gridlines" or 'gridlines'=true for none of these options work for me (Maple 2015.2, Mac OSX Mojave)
