offset position vs relative position

Recommended Posts

What's the context on that? Are they terms used by a specific library or in general? In general offset position could be interpreted as 'position' + 'offset'. Whereas Relative position is always the displacement between two points. Offset is also sometimes used as synonym for relative position.

You need to specify context for anything more than that, but i hope that helped

In general relative position is current position relative to something, maybe
the origin. And offset position is its displacement from a relative point,
maybe the origin.

Used how? What functions?

If you're reading documentation and you don't understand it, show (or provide a link to) the documentation that you don't understand.
