Draw virtual line in viewport [SOLVED]

Hi guys.

Sorry for dumb explanation, but I don't know how to explain what I want:)

I want to have a "virtual line" (or "wireframe line") that would connect Camera + Cube + Sphere.
That virtual line would not be renderable, its just displayed on viewport, same as Camera object is "drawn". In other word - a doodle line. I've no idea what to call it:)

Any ideas where I should be looking at for this scenario?

Thanks in advance.

You can do it in an ObjectData or TagData's Draw() method.

If it's not too much to ask, maybe you know of any references/examples for this kind of stuff?

I have an example on my website. I think I called it smooth spline or something like that.
It doesn't just draw a line. It draws a cubic spline.

You'll need to watch out for the Z-depth drawing bug that makes things drawn to the screen not render correctly.
It's a long time bug that Maxon insists isn't a bug...But I insist that it is.

So I won't be able to answer any questions about them.

actually there are a few examples on Draw() in the Python SDK. For example:
