Unhappy <viewpoint>.link

Hi,

I tried using the link function for a viewpoint doing what is in the help (something like: myview.link(mysensor))
but I get a error message stating that link() requires 3 arguments (2 given). What is the 3rd argument?

David

Hi David,

Just pass in 0 as the second argument. In the current version you don't need to do this, you might have an older version.

need more explanations

Thanks for your answer Farshizzo but I still don't understand.

I ran the following lines:

headTrack = viz.addsensor('is600')
#is600 is a custom plug-in that can track two sensors
headView = viz.add(viz.VIEWPOINT)
headView.link(headTrack,0)

And I got the error
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 2, in ?
File "test_attach_other_viewpoint.py", line 13, in ?
headView.link(headTrack,0)
File "C:\Program Files\Vizard20\viz.py", line 1354, in link
_ipcSend(_VIZ_LINKVIEW,self.id,sensor,id,'',mask,0 ,0,0)
TypeError: function takes exactly 8 arguments (9 given)

Then I tried putting the mask argument (0) first and tried the following script. But apparently the HEAD_LOOK vector is not updating, and I only get the vectors [0,0,1,0] over and over again.

import viz
viz.go()

headTrack = viz.addsensor('is600')
headTrack.command(11)
# Uses only 3 dof to prevent drifting of the scene
# To switch back to 6 dof use command(1)
handTrack = viz.addsensor('is600')
handTrack.command(11)

headView = viz.add(viz.VIEWPOINT)
headView.link(0,headTrack)

handView = viz.add(viz.VIEWPOINT)
handView.link(0,handTrack)

def test(t):
vect = headView.get(viz.HEAD_LOOK)
print 'headLook',vect
vect = handView.get(viz.HEAD_LOOK)
print 'handLook',vect
viz.starttimer(0,3)

viz.starttimer(0)
viz.callback(viz.TIMER_EVENT,'test')

Hi David,

Thanks for including the error message, there is a typo in viz.py. The following line:
Code:
_ipcSend(_VIZ_LINKVIEW,self.id,sensor,id,'',mask,0,0,0)
should be changed to:
Code:
_ipcSend(_VIZ_LINKVIEW,self.id,sensor.id,'',mask,0,0,0)
viz.py is in the main vizard directory. After you change this line, save the file and restart vizard. Your problem should be fixed then. Sorry for all the trouble.

Thumbs up

It seems to be working. Thanks!
I still have to test with the sensors connected, but it should work. At least I do not get a compilation error
