[vtkusers] How to generate a point in 3D and change its location through dragging

Hi David,

Last time you sent me this example to change the location of a 3D point. In
this example, I cannot rotate, translate the image through mouse event. Only
thing that I can do is to drag the point to a new position. I found that
using vtkInteractorStyleTrackballActor does not allow the default vtk
interaction. So I changed it into vtkInteractorStyleTrackballCamera which
allows the default vtk interaction. However, error occurred when I debugged
the code. The error comes from " this->InteractionProp = this->MoveActor;":
the InteractionProp is not a member of vtkInteractorStyleTrackballCamera.

So what should I do to not only change the point location, but also rotate,
translate, and zoom in/out the image?
