I am writing a library for the Raspberry Pi with Xojo. My intent is to make the syntax the same (or very similar) as Python.
pi = pigpio.pi()
How do I make the variable pi accept a handle value from the module pigpio and then use the variable as a handle value?
What I am doing now is
pigpio.Handle = pigpio.pi()
Call pigpio.set_mode(pigpio.Handle, 18, pigpio.OUTPUT)
How to I convert the module name pigpio to pi, and then have pi referenced as the handle in Xojo? I tried to set up the pigpio library as a class, but classes don’t extend.
classes can be extended and can be extended in a module that contains them
I do this all the time
whats “pi” in this case ?
that almost looks like a factory function in pigpio that returns a “pi”
Ok, thank you. I’ll look into it some more.
Its just a local method used to create a handle and return the integer value
Hmmm… just thinking about this a little more. I wonder if this would work as a Generic Object? I am going to play with this idea a little bit.
Edit: Just digging into this some more, pi is a variable that holds the object and the memory address.
Using a generic object works well also.
Thanks a bunch Norman!
