Re: Dynamic window popup question

Thank You for this nice solution.

By the way, I managed to achieve similar rezult putting
myMakeGraphics[] inside Block[]. Calling ListPointPlot3D inside Block[] 
and using the same PopupWindow construction, myMakeGraphics is 
supressed, so graphic are not actually generated. Then click on the 
point generates it in PopupWindow.
