Hi all, I am trying to make an experiment where there are several images on the screen, and once participants click on one of the images, a copy of that image will appear in another area. (Imagine you are shopping online, and once you click on one product, that product gets into your cart). The problem I am running into is copying the imageStim and changing the position.
I understand that I can’t just use the ‘=’ operator and need to use the copy module. This is what I write:
(let’s say I click on image1):
import copy newImage = copy.copy(image1) newImage.pos = (-0.2, -0.2) image1.pos #([0.15, 0.33]) newImage.pos #([-0.2, -0.2])
I checked imag1.pos and newImage.pos, they have different numbers. But when I draw them, they are in the same position on the screen.
I am not familiar with python so I don’t understand what the problem is. I;ve tried using copy.deepcopy, but there is an error saying that “ctypes objects containing pointers cannot be pickled” .
Any suggestions on how I should make a copy of the image or how to fix the copy.copy issue? Thank you very much!
