is there a way to generate the content of the reconfiguration GUI during runtime? For instance a drop down list where it's content is decided after program start.

I know the variables are declared in the .cfg and I need to compile the package in order to get the according header files. But is it possible to assign a created parameter on the parameter server to, for instance a drop down list?

Thanks in advance, Chris

Take a look at , it does appear possible to at least spawn a configure at runtime in python, I haven't tried out adding or removing or altering elements live- the gui might need to be refreshed after each change.
