Hi, i'm actually trying to use my own class method as callback of a topic. I do it like this

First i created a publisher :

    ros::Publisher topicDirection = n.advertise<std_msgs::Float64>("commandeDir", 1);

then i subscribe to this topic (commandeDir) with :

Servo pwmDir();
ros::Subscriber topicDir = n.subscribe("commandeDir", 1, &Servo::commande(const std_msgs::Float64& msg), pwmDir);

and my function looks like this :

void Servo::commande(const std_msgs::Float64& msg)

it throw me this error :

/opt/ros/indigo/include/ros/message_traits.h:138:31: error: ‘__s_getDataType’ is not a member of ‘int’
 return M::__s_getDataType().c_str();

i don't get what i am doing wrong ?

At the very least, you don't include the method signature (just the function identifier) in the 3rd parameter when creating the subscriber (the n.subscribe call).
