Constructor & Destructor Documentation

hebi::Lookup::Lookup ( )

Creates a Lookup object which can create Module and Group references. Typically, only one Lookup object should exist at a time.

Note that this call invokes a background thread to query the network for modules at regular intervals.

hebi::Lookup::~Lookup ( )
noexcept

Destructor frees all resources created by Lookup object, and stops the background query thread.

Member Function Documentation

std::shared_ptr< Group > hebi::Lookup::getGroupFromNames ( const std::vector< std::string > &  families,
const std::vector< std::string > &  names,
int32_t  timeout_ms = DEFAULT_TIMEOUT 
)

Get a group from modules with the given names and families.

If one of the input vectors is of length one, then that element is assumed to pair with each item in the other input vector.

Blocking call which returns a reference to a Group object with the given parameters. Times out after timeout_msec milliseconds.

Parameters
familiesA list of families of desired group modules, as viewable in the HEBI GUI. If of length one, this family is paried with each given name.
namesA list of names of desired group modules, as viewable in the HEBI GUI. If of length one, this name is paired with each given family
timeout_msTimeout in milliseconds. A value of -1 blocks until a group is found, and a value of 0 returns immediately if no group with that address is currently known by the Lookup class.
Returns
A shared_ptr with no reference if no group found in allotted time, or reference to a newly allocated group object corresponding to the given parameters otherwise.
std::shared_ptr< Group > hebi::Lookup::getGroupFromMacs ( const std::vector< MacAddress > &  addresses,
int32_t  timeout_ms = DEFAULT_TIMEOUT 
)

Get a group from modules with the given mac addresses.

Blocking call which returns a reference to a Group object with the given parameters. Times out after timeout_msec milliseconds.

Parameters
addressesList of physical mac addresses for desired group modules.
timeout_msTimeout in milliseconds. A value of -1 blocks until a group is found, and a value of 0 returns immediately if no group with that address is currently known by the Lookup class.
Returns
A shared_ptr with no reference if no group found in allotted time, or reference to a newly allocated group object corresponding to the given parameters otherwise.
std::shared_ptr< Group > hebi::Lookup::getGroupFromFamily ( const std::string &  family,
int32_t  timeout_ms = DEFAULT_TIMEOUT 
)

Get a group from all known modules with the given family.

Blocking call which returns a reference to a Group object with the given parameters. Times out after timeout_msec milliseconds.

Parameters
familyThe family of each of the desired group modules.
timeout_msTimeout in milliseconds. A value of -1 blocks until a group is found, and a value of 0 returns immediately if no group with that address is currently known by the Lookup class.
Returns
A shared_ptr with no reference if no group found in allotted time, or reference to a newly allocated group object corresponding to the given parameters otherwise.
std::shared_ptr< Group > hebi::Lookup::getConnectedGroupFromName ( const std::string &  family,
const std::string &  name,
int32_t  timeout_ms = DEFAULT_TIMEOUT 
)

Get a group from all modules known to connect to a module with the given name and family.

Blocking call which returns a reference to a Group object with the given parameters. Times out after timeout_msec milliseconds.

Parameters
familyThe given family of the module, as viewable in the HEBI GUI, to form the group from.
nameThe given name of the module, as viewable in the HEBI GUI, to form the group from.
timeout_msTimeout in milliseconds. A value of -1 blocks until a group is found, and a value of 0 returns immediately if no group with that address is currently known by the Lookup class.
Returns
A shared_ptr with no reference if no group found in allotted time, or reference to a newly allocated group object corresponding to the given parameters otherwise.
std::shared_ptr< Group > hebi::Lookup::getConnectedGroupFromMac ( const MacAddress address,
int32_t  timeout_ms = DEFAULT_TIMEOUT 
)

Get a group from all modules known to connect to a module with the given mac address.

Blocking call which returns a reference to a Group object with the given parameters. Times out after timeout_msec milliseconds.

Parameters
addressPhysical mac address of the module to form the group from.
timeout_msTimeout in milliseconds. A value of -1 blocks until a group is found, and a value of 0 returns immediately if no group with that address is currently known by the Lookup class.
Returns
A shared_ptr with no reference if no group found in allotted time, or reference to a newly allocated group object corresponding to the given parameters otherwise.
float hebi::Lookup::getInitialGroupFeedbackFrequencyHz ( )

Gets the default feedback frequency value for groups created from this lookup.

Defaults to 100 Hz.

See Group documentation for detailed usage, and docs.hebi.us for more information on feedback requests.

void hebi::Lookup::setInitialGroupFeedbackFrequencyHz ( float  frequency)

Sets the default feedback frequency value for groups created from this lookup.

Parameters
frequencyThe frequency, in Hz, that newly-created groups will request feedback at.
int32_t hebi::Lookup::getInitialGroupCommandLifetimeMs ( )

Gets the default command lifetime value for groups created from this lookup.

Defaults to 250 ms.

See Group documentation for detailed usage, and docs.hebi.us for more information on Command Lifetime.

void hebi::Lookup::setInitialGroupCommandLifetimeMs ( int32_t  ms)

Sets the default command lifetime value for groups created from this lookup.

Parameters
msThe number of milliseconds that newly-created groups will use as their command lifetime when sending out commands.
