RFT dispatch UI events into html5 <CANVAS> objects: example:: Mouse UP event listener is active on <CANVAS> dispatch Mouse UP

Application makes extensive use of <CANVAS>. Multiple WebGL Listeners are enabled on the <CANVAS> hence JavaScript is ready to execute on 2D and 3D WebGL objects.

3D model display manipulation and selection requires a complex Listener setup RFT requires to provide the same <CANVAS> event inputs to cause the same application behavior.
The applications do not have a backup graphical selection mechanism. I cannot enter part name or select a form item, it is WebGL interface.
WebGL code correctly processes multiple events and provides the backend with correct selection, view rotation, zoom etc.

RFT needs to dispatch the correct mouse events to the <CANVAS> object
