To get values from Wii Remote through IronPython is very easy.
At first you need to get WiimoteLi.dll from
Managed Library for Nintendo's Wiimote - Release: WiimoteLib v1.2.
Its document is nice.
And then save a following script as name "setup_wii.py"
from WiimoteLib import *
wii = Wiimote()
def get_value(sender, args):
a = args
wii.WiimoteChanged += WiimoteChangedEventHandler(get_value)
In the script, at first I get a namespace "WiimoteLib" from wiimotelib.dll and import all objects in it.
Secondly I make an instance of "Wiimote" class. Its "WiimoteChanged" field is "event" and "+=" means "add event listener". I set a minimal event listener.
Finally I call connect its instance and tell it should return IR-Camera data and accelation data. You should read WiimoteLib.dll's document and choice the correct report type.
Let's use the script in interactive console.
>>> import setup_wiiOK, I got the argument of the event listener.
<WiimoteChangedEventArgs object at 0x000000000000002B>
To know what fields the object have, you should read WiimoteLib.dll's document. It is very comprehensive. Today I want to get the result of IR-Camera, so I did like below.
>>> setup_wii.a.WiimoteStateI got it! It is very easy!
<WiimoteState object at 0x000000000000002C>
<WiimoteLib.IRState object at 0x000000000000002D [WiimoteLib.IRState]>

The reference to my Japanese entry in IronPython URL's: Using the Wiimote from IronPython motivated me to write blog in English. Thanks!
