renwin.AddRenderer(renderer)

# An interactor
interactor = vtk.vtkRenderWindowInteractor()
interactor.SetRenderWindow(renwin)

# A Sphere widget
sphereWidget = vtk.vtkSphereWidget()
sphereWidget.SetInteractor(interactor)
sphereWidget.SetRepresentationToSurface()
sphereWidget.On()

# Connect the event to a function
sphereWidget.AddObserver("InteractionEvent", sphereCallback)

# Start
interactor.Initialize()
interactor.Start()
