 Thank you for responding, Todd.
First of all, I cannot instantiate vtkAbstractPropPicker, as it is abstract type. I appreciate if you can send me some sudo code. BTW, I moved from vtk7.1.1 to 8.1.0.
Thank youRao

Hello all,
I have two vtkPropAssemblies in the Renderer, each with couple of vtkActors. How do I pick an actor using mouse? I need to find the actor and the location on the actor. I tried the following code, but I am getting an assembly instead of the actor.
picker = vtk.vtkPropPicker()if picker.Pick(mouseX, mouseY, 0,  renderer):        prop = picker.GetPath().GetFirstNode().GetViewProp()
Please advise.
Thank youRao
