jit.pwindow attribute "pickray" ?

Nov 06 2013 | 6:00 pm

I was looking for a way to have mouseclicks inside a pwindow reporting location in pwindow’s cell coordinates rather than screen pixels, then i saw the "pickray" attribute. So i tried to check that, then instantanously the jit.pwindow became buggy and glitchy, and it outputs a "pickray" message wiht numbers which are not looking so relevant.
Hence, here i am, seeking to enlight my numbed soul.

to get the bug : i created those things, then checked the "pickray", then try to resize/move the pwindow. Here, have a picture :

Hi. I’ve noticed it too.

Here are the steps:
1. Turn "pickray" on.
2. Click inside the pwindow.
3. Try to grow the pwindow (bottom right corner or through the inspector, it doesn’t matter).
4. It’s not a momentary glitch. The pwindow never updates, even if you bang the matrix.

On a side note, the first and second values that get out of pickray seem to be the normalized coordinates (-1 to 1) on the x and y axis, but Rob Ramirez is certainly in a better position to clarify it.

apologies for missing this post.
pickray only functions when the pwindow is the drawing destination of a gl-context.
