jit.gl.handle responds to mouse clicks and drags in the destination by generating rotate and position messages out its left outlet.
This object requires one argument: the name of a drawing context. A named drawing context is a named instance of a jit.window, jit.pwindow, or jit.matrix object which has an instance of the jit.gl.render object associated with it. Additionally it can reference the name of a jit.gl.node sub-context. This value may also be set via the OB3D drawto attribute. If no argument is present, the object is implicitly added to the first valid drawing context or sub-context found in the current patch or by searching up the patcher hierarchy. When the context is being drawn to a jit.window or jit.pwindow, jit.gl.handle responds to mouse clicks and drags in the destination by generating rotate and position messages out its left outlet. When these messages are sent to 3D objects, the objects can then be rotated and moved in space using the mouse.If the messages from jit.gl.handle are sent directly to jit.gl.render, mouse motion has the effect of moving and rotating the entire 3D space defined by the renderer. In this setup, the inherit_transform attribute should be set to 1, so that the jit.gl.handle object does not move within the world as well. While mouse input is present, the jit.gl.handle is drawn as circles around a sphere on the x, y, and z axes. Clicking and dragging on the sphere rotates connected objects. Dragging with the command key held moves the objects along the xy plane relative to the camera. Dragging with the option key held moves the objects towards and away from the camera.
Enable/disable auto handle mode. When enabled the handle will perform mouse picking to select 3D objects under the mouse. This mode is enabled by default when the jit.gl.handle left inlet is unconnected.

Sets the justification for the object's text.
0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'
The name of a jit.anim.node object that handles all spatial transforms for this instance (default = UID). The default value references an internal object, but can be overridden by setting to the name of an existing external jit.anim.node instance. This allows for more advanced control of the spatial transform.
anchor [3 floats]
The anchor position in local space (default = 0. 0. 0.). Allows for offsetting the local 3D origin around which transforms are applied.
Determines which space the
local = Rotate relative to local axis
parent = Rotate relative to parent axis
world = Rotate relative to world axis
Antialiasing flag (default = 0) On some hardware, the blend_enable attribute must also be enabled for antialiasing to work.

Face culling mode (default = 0 (no culling))
0 = no culling
1 = cull back faces
2 = cull front faces
Depth buffer clear flag (default = 0) When the flag is set, the depth buffer is cleared before rendering the object.
Depth buffering flag (default = 1) When the flag is set, depth buffering is enabled.
Depth write flag (default = 1). When the flag is set, writing to the depth buffer is enabled. This will have no effect if depth_enable is turned off.
