Any Mach3 VBasic Code gurus around?

Hello eveybody,

I've used the buttons and codes mentioned here to implement a camera in my CNC machine, to zero and reference coordinates for double sided PCB cutting.
https://openbuilds.com/builds/tool-position-setting-part-iii.490/

All the coded buttons described work very well BUT, I've noticed that in my machine, the camera offset sometimes randomly slightly changes. Probably some backlash or the camera mount or whatever,...no big deal since I can correct the offset values, but I would like to add a button that when clicked, would copy the present X and Y coordinates of the machine, and insert them in the "Home" and "C" buttons code, mentioned in the link. That would make things dead easy :)

Anyone know if this is possible at all?
Thanks for your input
Cheers
