Multiple or Conditional Configuration Parameters

Hello,

First of all, I must say that I'm not sure how to organize/design this. So, I'm going to explain it with an example:

I have an application that detects features using OpenCV features detectors. I've allowed to dynamically reconfigure the feature detector (one of: SURF, SIFT, GFTT, ...), coding a cfg file as explained here.

Now I want to do the same for the parameters of each feature detectors, but I'm not sure what can I do with ROS support.

Could I make the parameters of each feature detector to appear (in reconfiguregui) conditionally, depending on the current feature detector selected?

If not, is it possible (appropiate) to have serveral cfg files in a single package? I think, this way I could run several instances of reconfiguregui, one for a feature detector.

  1. Could I make the parameters of each feature detector to appear (in reconfiguregui) conditionally, depending on the current feature detector selected?

  2. If not, is it possible (appropiate) to have serveral cfg files in a single package? I think, this way I could run several instances of reconfiguregui, one for a feature detector.
