Thank you! Got the example working. Getting our coders to wrap their heads around simulation and its prerequisites will elevate our code. We are very appreciative and thankful for the efforts you have put into simulation support.
FWIW: It was the last documentation item you mentioned that I was missing.
A follow up question…
What needs to be edited to redefine how a keyboard within [System Joysticks] maps key bindings to a joystick in [Joysticks]? Surprisingly few of our coders have usb gamepads or xbox controllers at home. It would be nice to be able to configure custom keyboard key bindings to fully simulate our joystick controls.
Regarding setting up simulation for the first time… The documentation is all there, but a bit difficult to navigate to find everything the first time through. Cross-links between the various locations of simulation documentation would indeed be helpful:
- Software Tools
- Examples and Tutorials
Note, the Simulation User Interface page under Robot Simulation does not mention that the simulation gui is Glass. Perhaps this should be self-evident, but would be a good mention and a good place to link to the Glass Field2d Widget docs
Many hands make for light work. If you can point me to where the documentation exists within a github repository, I will open an issue, update the docs, and submit a pull request.
Thank you again!
