You can catch the first click of the right mouse button with But to then drag to
the second point would require you to write a new
extension class of DirectManipulationRendererJ3D, similar
to This would be

Another approach is to create both end points with clicks
and Then to allow
the user to drag existing end points with

Of course, this would also require other logic, in CellImpls
that are triggered by PointManipulationRendererJ3D and
DirectManipulationRendererJ3D. These CellImpls would construct
RealTuples for the end points and Gridded2DSets with manifold
dimension = 1 for the connecting line.

Good luck,
