Hi, I defined a 3d "world" in matlab (axes). within this "world" i draw a few graphic objects (cubes and spheres using patch and surf commands). i wish to pick one of these object handles by simply clicking on them in the figure. (after the click i want to get the graphic handle of the object thats under the cursor)
is this possible? and if so, how?

It's easiest if you can create a handle during plotting, eg
h = plot(_)
You can also modify objects after clicking the icon at the very right of the toolbar. You can then use the object properties box to edit. Not sure if this covers your question?
