Possible to dynamically make gridshapes?


    Jan 23 2013 | 11:23 am
    Hello,
    I'm wondering if it's possible to make gridshapes with input
    from the mouse. I've included a patch with a script, which is
    a modification of jitter tutorial 47.
    There are some clues on these threads:

    but I guess I can't wrap my head around the syntax (I've never used prototyping before).
    It might not even be possible, when I save I get the error message
    "js jitter listener: can't make event object"
    Any help or advice would be appreciated!

      Just wanted to add, on my system, tutorial 47 acts strangely.
      When the mouse is idle, the sphere/torus moves back to the centre position.
      I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to do this.
      Anyone confirm if this is a bug? (else, a quirk of my system) ...

      I'm also interested in making a similar patch, and I've been having the same problem with the tutorial 47 patcher.

      Anybody else have the same problem or can comment on this matter?
      I know that, with the second script I uploaded, the circles are being created,
      they're just not being placed where the mouse cursor is.
      As if there's a problem with event.args[0] and args[1].
