#563 closed defect/bug (fixed)

dbus set_center(s) can not be called?

Component: dbus Version: git master
Severity: Keywords:



#! /usr/bin/python import dbus bus = dbus.SessionBus?() conn = bus.get_object('org.navit_project.navit',


iface = dbus.Interface(conn, dbus_interface='org.navit_project.navit'); iter=iface.attr_iter(); navit=bus.get_object('org.navit_project.navit', conn.get_attr_wi("navit",iter)[1]); iface.attr_iter_destroy(iter); navit_iface = dbus.Interface(navit, dbus_interface='org.navit_project.navit.navit'); navit_iface.set_center((1,0x138a4a,0x5d773f));

works but I can't figure out how to generate those coordinates or what "1" means as projection. I tried to change the last line to

navit_iface.set_center("geo: 24.0 60.0")

but then I get

ERROR:dbus.connection:Unable to set arguments ('geo: 60.0 24.0',) according to signature u'(iii)': <type 'exceptions.TypeError?'>: an integer is required Traceback (most recent call last):

File "./", line 12, in <module>

TypeError?: an integer is required

I'm using navit 0.2.0~svn2974+dfsg.1-1 in debian unstable.

It seems that if I use a different name for the set_center version that takes a string as argument everything works. The attached patch adds set_center_by_string which can be used with

navit_iface.set_center_by_string("geo: 24.0 60.0")
