I am using Ubuntu 20.04 and ROS Noetic. In RViz, I can add/remove the grid lines by clicking the Grid checkbox in the Displays panel (highlighted in red in the screenshot below).


Rather than using the Displays panel, I'd like to be able to add/remove grid lines from a rqt plugin I created. Is there a programmatic way to add/remove the grid lines? I haven't found any information on what the Grid checkbox is actually doing when it is checked/unchecked.

Any help is much appreciated!

quick comment: that checkbox is a property of the plugin display.

You'd have to find the display instance, "reach in", retrieve the property and then set it to a different value.

I don't have any code to show you (hence only a comment), but I'd search around for "how to set properties of rviz display plugins" (or similar keywords).

Thanks for the information. I will do some searching using your suggestion.
