Eclipse IDE with Vizard

How I got Eclipse going with Vizard:

1. Download and install Classic Eclipse

2. Follow the instruction here to install and configure pyDev.
http://www.fabioz.com/pydev/manual_101_root.html
Be sure to point to the python.exe in the Vizard/bin directory.
Also, manually add the Vizard/python directory for auto complete to work.

3. To get Vizard executing in the IDE as an external tool:
Open the Run->External Tools->open external tools dialog.
Create a new configuration.
Set the Location to C:\Program Files\WorldViz\Vizard30\bin\winviz.exe
Leave the Working Directory blank
Set the Arguments to "${resource_loc}"

4. Place your project files in the same directory as your script/.py files.

Hi Gladsomebeast

I'm new to Python and Vizard but a bit familiar to Eclipse. So I tried to install Pydev as you described.

But when I run a Vizard script including the viz.go() command I get this error message:

import viz
File "C:\Program Files\WorldViz\Vizard30\python\viz.py", line 10, in ?
import vizmat
File "C:\Program Files\WorldViz\Vizard30\python\vizmat.py", line 1, in ?
import transform
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.


The files viz.py and vizmat.py could be found. The transform.dll exists in C:\Program Files\WorldViz\Vizard30\bin\DLLs and although this directory is included to the PYTHONPATH it could not be loaded. It even doesn't work if I copy the dll to the viz.py dir!

Someone has an idea?

Its been a while since I've used Eclipse, so I did not attempt to reproduce the problem. However, i've got a theory.

I suspect Eclipse is trying to execute your scripts with the default python.exe rather than winviz.exe. Transform.dll was compiled to run with the version of python embedded in winviz.exe, not whatever python.exe I think Eclipse is trying to use, thus the dll is failing to load.

Check that you are trying to execute with 'external tools,' not the default green arrow execute icon. Also, double check that everything is right in step 3 of my initial instructions.

Your assumption proved right:

Eclipse used the default python.exe for running. Explicit usage of the external tool winviz.exe works fine(green arrow icon with red suitcase).

Thanks for that hint!

Hey Penguin,

How's Eclipse working out for you?

I loved Eclipse's auto-complete feature, but ended up going back to using Vizard's IDE. I like having the standard output in the same window as the code, rather than the command line window winviz pops up.
