I am using robot mesh studio python to code multitasking but cant figure it out. Does anyone have an example of how to multitask in this code?
Hello 244, Take a look at this document from RobotMesh. It includes a sample program.
This didnt work either. What I’m trying to do is make a macro but when I have the else statements to stop my intakes, it affects the macro too and wont run the intakes during the macro
Could you make your program public, and then post a link to it in this thread?
The motors will follow the most recent command. If you have one task that is constantly sending commands to a motor, other tasks won’t have much of an opportunity to do anything with that motor. One way around this would be a variable that tracks whether or not the motor is in use by another task. In the larger world of programming, this kind of variable is called a mutex.
You could do something like this:
intake_in_use = False def macro (): while intake_in_use: pass intake_in_use = True #macro code goes here intake_in_use = False def drivercontrol(): while True: if not intake_in_use: #drivercontrol intake code (i.e. if...elif..else style) pass
Where would I put the macro function so that it runs?
Doesn’t it have to be in driver control to run?
Did you look at the examples and documentation linked by @jrp62 earlier in this thread?
