Get 0D state¶
To get the state of a 0D, sardana calls the
StateOne() method. During the
acquisition loop this method is called only once when it is about to
exit. This method receives an axis as parameter and should return either:
The state should be a member of
State (For backward
compatibility reasons, it is also supported to return one of
PyTango.DevState). The status could be any string.
If you don’t return a status, sardana will compose a status string with:
<axis name> is in <state name>
The controller could return on of the four states On, Alarm, Fault or Unknown. Apart of that sardana could set Moving or Fault state to the 0D. The Moving state is set during the acquisition loop to indicate that it is acquiring data. The Fault state is set when the controller software is not available (impossible to load it). The controller should return Fault if a fault is reported from the hardware controller or if the controller software returns an unforeseen state. The controller should return Unknown state if an exception occurs during the communication between the pool and the hardware controller.
