Array Index Out Of Bounds Exception:0

edited August 2017 in Using Processing

I am having a problem with the below code -

it is happening at line 72: This is the line that gets highlighted when the patch crashes.

Voronoi myVoronoi = new Voronoi( points );

Has anyone any ideas what the issue is? Thank you!

  size(1280, 720);

  flowfield = new FlowField(50);

  • I am having some trouble running the library. First guess is to use random(width) instead of random(800); in lines 31/32. You could consider also checking the examples of voronoi available under the HE_mesh in tits geometry directory. Not sure if they are the same library or if they could work in your application.

    Also, I didn't see your implementation of the Vehicle class. Did you forget to included? It is great if you can post code that we can run.


  • Hi Thanks for looking, I tried changing the random(800) to random(width). No joy. It still crashes with the above error. I will look at the HE_mesh examples now to see if it has any answers, and I have uploaded the patch for you to run with the vehicle class here -
