Error when using the LuaScriptingModule, suggestions?

For help with general CEGUI usage:
- Questions about the usage of CEGUI and its features, if not explained in the documentation.
- Problems with the CMAKE configuration or problems occuring during the build process/compilation.
- Errors or unexpected behaviour.

Error when using the LuaScriptingModule, suggestions?

Postby Butabah » Fri Aug 17, 2012 06:32

Hi there! I'm using freshly compiled code from the website, and am trying to execute some simple Lua.

Version 0.7.7 (Build: Jul 17 2012 Debug Microsoft Windows MSVC++ 10.0 32 bit) ----

Code: Select all

Renderer module is: CEGUI::OgreRenderer - Official OGRE based 2nd generation renderer module. ----
XML Parser module is: CEGUI::ExpatParser - Official expat based parser module for CEGUI ----
Image Codec module is: OgreImageCodec - Integrated ImageCodec using the Ogre engine. ----
Scripting module is: CEGUI::LuaScriptModule - Official Lua based scripting module for CEGUI ----


Code: Select all

(Error)   CEGUI::ScriptException in file c:\dev\cegui-0.7.7\cegui\src\scriptingmodules\luascriptmodule\ceguilua.cpp(686) : Unable to execute Lua script string: 'CEGUI.System:getSingleton()'

[string "CEGUI.System:getSingleton()"]:1: attempt to index global 'CEGUI' (a nil value)


No other errors before this.

Here is the code that is causing the error (assume OGRE has been completely initialized before this)

Code: Select all

    CEGUI::OgreRenderer& ogreRenderer = CEGUI::OgreRenderer::create();
    CEGUI::OgreImageCodec& ic = ogreRenderer.createOgreImageCodec();
    CEGUI::OgreResourceProvider& rsp  = ogreRenderer.createOgreResourceProvider();
    CEGUI::LuaScriptModule* luaScriptModule = &CEGUI::LuaScriptModule::create();

    CEGUI::System::create(ogreRenderer, &rsp, static_cast<CEGUI::XMLParser*>(0), &ic, luaScriptModule);

    luaScriptModule->executeString("CEGUI.System:getSingleton()");


Executing standard lua code, like 'print('hello, world!')' works.

This reply was deleted for being clearly wrong. Sorry for that. I will reply again later.

The log looks as if everything is correct, and the bindings were initialised. I tested similar code - that brings up a minimal CEGUI system and executes the same script string you've used here and it worked ok for me. The main differences between what you're doing and my test is that I used the Null renderer and that I run GNU/Linux and not MS Windows (though neither of these points should make a difference to the script module working or not).

I can't really explain what is going on from the information given - clearly something is amiss. What version of lua are you using? Is it the one out of the CEGUI dependency pack? If you build the CEGUI samples, does Demo8 function ok?

CE.

Hey CE! It's working now, it was an issue with confliction Lua libs.

I simply removed all Lua from my computer (not an easy task because Windows is fantastic with where you can place static\dyn libs, and DLLs)

Reinstalled the CEGUI Dependency's Lua and works perfectly.
