intersection with texquad


If we use texquads as objects that intersect with a ray from the vive controller, is there a way to change the names of the texquads to have something other than "drawable"? Already tried hardcoding the name to something like below, but didn't work:
myTexQuad = viz.addTexQuad(size=[1.21, 1.71]) = "texQuadCustomName"

The intersection with the vive controller is the standard function from the worldviz example for vive that shipped with vizard (below). It returns the intersected object, which could be a VizChild or a VizTexQuad.

def IntersectController(controller):
"""Perform intersection using controller"""
line = controller.model.getLineForward(viz.ABS_GLOBAL, length=100.0)
return viz.intersect(line.begin, line.end)

First check to see if the intersected object is the quad, then get the name attribute you assigned to it. Does that work for you?
import viz

myTexQuad = viz.addTexQuad(pos=[0,1.8,2]) = "texQuadCustomName"

info = viz.intersect([0,1.8,0],[0,1.8,4])
if info.valid:
	if info.object == myTexQuad:

yes, that code works by itself - thanks!

For the purposes of our project, just using the following variant:
listOfQuads = []
if info.object is in listOfQuads:
