Agent.Agent()

static Agent Agent( Object object )

Parameters

object An object that is a member of an agent system.

Returns

Agent An AGV object

Description

Gets access to the Agent associated with an Object.

To access the Agent associated with an object, you must either use this constructor, or call Agent.System.getAgent. If an object is a member of multiple agent systems, then calling this constructor will access the first system the object is a member of. Casting from a treenode is not correct.

You should use this constructor instead of the as() casting method. Using as() on an object will not work properly.

Agent agent = Agent(object); // correct
Agent agent = object; // auto-downcast: incorrect
Agent agent = object.as(Agent); // explicit cast: incorrect
