How can I have space coordinates of the point I'm clicking in jit.window ??

    I want to be able to create object by clicking on the screen and I need coordinates in order to fire a message to my JS core to push a new object in an array + to instantiate that object on the screen.
    For this, I need space coordinates
    anyone? I tried to work with jit.gl.handle, picker but they are object related so .. I may miss something..

      Not sure what you need, but here is one way to get glworld coordinates:

      I'm just a nerd who doesn't know how to communicate :-0 indeed, it isn't the thing I'm looking for :-/
      I guess the best way will be to create an external helper (I mean external to that patch) and to proceed with it

      @Ben thanks to you too for your answwer.
      ok it works, it is what I need. I didn't get the mouse x y z message from the info outlet of jit.window :)
