View Full Version : How to map HTML button to Transport in Vizconnect

02-19-2015, 11:35 AM
Iíve setup an HTML page with a button on it using vizhtml

<input id='forward' type=button value="Forward">

And when that button is clicked it sends a message to Vizard

$("#forward").click(function() {
socket.send( 'forward' , viz.Data({}) );

Is there a way to map this HTML button to the Driving Transport in the vizconnect configuration file instead of mapping an input device like a keyboard or Joystick to the Driving Transport?

Attached JPEG shows mapping Keyboard keys to Driving Transport, I would like to be able to map an HTML button. Is there a way to setup a Driving Transport and then map HTML button in the code?

Thank you

This is not possible through the vizconnect GUI but should be possible by manually modifying the config file. I'll try and post a simple example soon.

In the attached example the transport is defined in the vizconfig file but the transport's update function is moved to the main script. In the main script, there is a class which stores the button states. The update function moves the transport based on these button states.
