RobotStudio event

can I use a procedure to output a selected parameter?

edited March 2 in RobotStudio
Hi there,

I'm trying to create a procedure that from a few parameters can crunch some numbers and then modify/ update a position variable. which can be used throughout with different parameters.  

here's an example to give an idea of what I mean:

VAR pos Input:=[3,2,1]
VAR pos Output:=[0,0,0]

PROC main()
PosOutput input, output;

PROC PosOutput(pos pos1, pos pos2)

pos2:= [pos1.x*2, pos2.y, pos2.z];


When I run such a program the Output variable doesn't seem to update. is there a way to update the Output that's being called through the procedure?

    I think that you will see that the value for pos2 has the value stored in it.  Just because you name a parameter "Output" does not make it behave in the way you want it to.  Make the parameter for pos2 an INOUT parameter and you should see the value changing.

  • Like this

    PROC PosOutput(pos pos1, INOUT pos pos2)

    pos2:= [pos1.x*2, pos2.y, pos2.z];
