Sensor callback to the wii mote buttons

I read over the tutorial script and I created two callbacks for a sensor up and sensor down event.

The tutorial uses vizact commands,
I am not so much a fan of these and I was wondering if I can do button checking the 'classic' way:

if b = wii.BUTTON_A:

How do I go about doing this? I'm not sure what kind of object is being returned in the callback functions.


Thanks,
George

The Event Reference section of the docs explains how to use viz.SENSOR_DOWN_EVENT and viz.SENSOR_UP_EVENT. These will be triggered when a sensor button is pressed/released.

Yes,

I have taken a look at this section and it does cover how the sensor_down and up event work.

However, in the example given it maps a button from a joystick to a variable and then checks if that is the object in question.

With the wiimote, you have a section in the reference which specifies
<wii>.BUTTON_LEFT
<wii>.BUTTON_A
...

when setting up my conditional statement what do I put in there to check the event.

I looked and saw that an event is being returned as 'e' in the callback, then when I did e.object, it told me : __main__._WiimoteSensor(0)

So it is returning a WiimoteSensor, however how do I access what button from the sensor is being pressed? All buttons return the same __main__._WiimoteSensor(0) for the sensor, so I need to go a level deeper to do my check. How do I do this?

Thank You,

George

Wow, I'm sorry I'm a complete and total idiot.

The answer is right there in the DOC staring me in the face.

I think I've been at a computer for too long.

Thanks again!

George
