I am new to ROS and i want to use Dynamic reconfiguration technique to set a parameter (rectangle_height).

Through internet i came across with the following method but its not working.

Problem: when i run rqt_reconfigure, in that my node (visual_analysis) is not visual so i can't change the parameter.

-In my Includes, i have included the following:

#include <dynamic_reconfigure/DoubleParameter.h>
#include <dynamic_reconfigure/Reconfigure.h>
#include <dynamic_reconfigure/Config.h>

-In my main() where my variable is declared, i have written the following:

int main( )
    double rectangle_height;

    ///////////////////Dynamic Reconfig
    dynamic_reconfigure::ReconfigureRequest srv_req;
    dynamic_reconfigure::ReconfigureResponse srv_resp;
    dynamic_reconfigure::DoubleParameter double_param;
    dynamic_reconfigure::Config conf;   

    //Entering values using Dynamic Reconfig = "kurtana_pitch_joint";
    double_param.value = rectangle_height;

    srv_req.config = conf;
    ros::service::call("/visual_analysis/set_parameters", srv_req, srv_resp);

    return 0;

You have to add explicit support for dynamic_reconfigure in the node you're trying to configure.

Dynamic_reconfigure has a very nice tutorial describing how to do this:
