vizinfo in HMD mode
I am using the vizinfo to get input from the user. It works fine when I'm testing, but is unable to recieve input when in HMD mode. (for example: textbox fields cannot be selected to type in, radio buttons do not get clicked) Any suggetions?


        viz.displaymode(1280, 480, 16, 60)


info = vizinfo.add('User Input', 1)
inputBox = info.add( viz.TEXTBOX, "blah" )
inputRadio1 = info.add( viz.RADIO, 1, "blah:    1" )
inputRadio2 = info.add( viz.RADIO, 1, "2" )

When using stereo, GUI interaction only takes place on the left eye. So you need to interact with the left side of the screen.

I am interacting with the left side of the screen. It isn't responding.
(But actually, in the right side of the screen, it does respond to clicking on the textboxes but not on the radio buttons. Didn't include that note in the first post since I didn't want to add confusion)

Which version of Vizard are you using?

version: 2.51c

In 2.51 GUI interaction is performed as if STEREO mode is not specified, so it can be really confusing. If you plan on using GUI interaction with STEREO mode enabled I suggest you upgrade to the latest version (2.53).

I'll keep that in mind and ask my lab director if we can upgrade to the latest version. Is there any way to make it work in the version we are currently running?

Unfortunately there is no workaround for this. Just so you know, it is free to upgrade to version 2.53. You can go the download page and install it right now, assuming your lab director is OK with that.

I upgraded to 2.53 and that fixed the problem. Thank you for your help!
