3. Context. Why do you need to do this? We might know a better way to accomplish your goal.

4. The Cesium version you’re using, your operating system and browser.

You just need to set the viewer’s selectedEntity (see And you can simulate clicking away by setting that to undefined.

Thank you!

Hi Omar,

It’s helpful as brings me closer to objective, but this does select the entity however is not firing the click event function assigned to it.

Any way to fire the custom click event handler?

Thanks in advance.

Can’t you just call the click function directly when you set it as the selectedEntity?
