I have tried the Rviz tutorial on Interactive markers, in particular the one for menus. But as you can see in the code this is not object-oriented.

I want to do the same using classes, and so far I have been able to show the menus and everything except the callback.

In the code you have

void deepCb( const visualization_msgs::InteractiveMarkerFeedbackConstPtr &feedback )
      ROS_INFO("The deep sub-menu has been found.");
void initMenu()
  h_first_entry = menu_handler.insert( "First Entry" );
  MenuHandler::EntryHandle entry = menu_handler.insert( h_first_entry, "deep" );
  entry = menu_handler.insert( entry, "sub" );
  entry = menu_handler.insert( entry, "menu", &deepCb );  //<----This works HERE but not with classes

This code works but when I convert this to classes I have

void MyClass::deepCb( const visualization_msgs::InteractiveMarkerFeedbackConstPtr &feedback )
      ROS_INFO("The deep sub-menu has been found.");

So I want to do the line marked above

   entry = menu_handler.insert( entry, "menu", &MyClass::deepCb );

This does not compile. I got the error

‘static void boost::detail::function::function_void_mem_invoker1<MemberPtr, R, T0>::invoke(boost::detail::function::function_buffer&, T0) [with MemberPtr = void (MyClass::*)(const boost::shared_ptr<const visualization_msgs::InteractiveMarkerFeedback_<std::allocator<void> > >&); R = void; T0 = const boost::shared_ptr<const visualization_msgs::InteractiveMarkerFeedback_<std::allocator<void> > >&]’:

error: no match for call to ‘(boost::_mfi::mf1<void, MyClass, const boost::shared_ptr<const visualization_msgs::InteractiveMarkerFeedback_<std::allocator<void> > >&>) (const boost::shared_ptr<const visualization_msgs::InteractiveMarkerFeedback_<std::allocator<void> > >&)’

My question is how can I assign a callback here when it is a method?


This is a question with a similar error problem but the answers do not solve the problem

Hi Kansai, for this to work within a class you need to bind your callback and its argument:

entry = menu_handler.insert(entry, "menu", boost::bind(&MyClass::deepCb, this, _1));

Here, _1 is a placeholder to bind the only parameter your callback takes in, namely &feedback.
