I followed KnowRob_basics.

I found when I run


I only can run it once.

if I run again, it just shows:

  ?- visualisation_canvas(C).
  C = @'J#00000140499119889776'.


How to call visualisation_canvas again without restart prolog?

Thank you~

Actually, there is a way to kill the old canvas and start a new one, but it's a bit hacky (which does not have to be bad, though...)

visualisation_canvas(_). <close the="" window=""> retractall(mod_vis:v_canvas(_)), assert(mod_vis:v_canvas(fail)). visualisation_canvas(_).

Thank you~~ In my case I should run: retractall(mod_vis:v_canvas(C)), assert(mod_vis:v_canvas(fail)). visualisation_canvas(C). It works!!

there is currrently no way to re-show the canvas once it's closed. You do, however, have a handle to a Java JFrame and can try to call its methods using the JPL interface, though I don't know if there is a method that revives a closed window.

best, Moritz
