alternate trigger for mouseDown possible? - Macromedia Director 3D

I am doing a project that allows me to navigate a 3d shockwave environment using physical movements/gestures through the tracking of webcamxtra. At the moment, the cursor of the mouse is set to the centre of the stage through a setmouse xtra. Is it possible to trigger the mouseDown handler without actually having to click the mouse? perhaps through another handler?

    Default alternate trigger for mouseDown possible?

    I am doing a project that allows me to navigate a 3d shockwave environment using physical movements/gestures through the tracking of webcamxtra. At the moment, the cursor of the mouse is set to the centre of the stage through a setmouse xtra. Is it possible to trigger the mouseDown handler without actually having to click the mouse? perhaps through another handler?

    For example, the cursor at the moment acts like a aiming crosshair for navigation but it could also be used to select a screen to play a realmedia file within the 3d environment. So what im trying to do now is to find an alternate way to trigger the mouseDown handler. Appreciate any help at all thanks!
