Mouse Control and Events in Navisworks API

Have written a plugin where I use both .NET and COM to create Hyperlinks. Would like to get feedback from user to get location to add links but can't see how to do w/ non ActiveX interface. Assuming ActiveX Control is not applicable when inside Navisworks application. Would like to get a click event and location where user picks location on selected model. Can this be done? Thanks in advance…

- no mouse/keyboard events in .NET API (.NET control) in current releases


- with ActiveX control, you could try wtih InwControl.PickPixel . i.e. firstly get a 2d points from mouse event of control, next call this method to ge the 3d information. Hope it helps.
