Hi
I'm having trouble with convert a clicked position into opengl 3d coordinates.
How do I do that?

I will be using it for dragging objects, not opengl picking.
The camera can be rotated, and thats where the hard part is.
When the user drag the mouse horizontal, I want the object to be dragged with the mouse.

tnx
