When I use the following commands for a nested object:

var x = diagramObject.bounds.x;
var y = diagramObject.bounds.y;

I will find the x- and y coordinates relative to the enveloping object.

Maybe this is intented, but I was looking voor de coordinates relative to the view.

Is that possible?

You have to compute absolute coordinates yourself by iterating through parents, until you reach the view itself.
