Failing to bind GPU to screen


I am working on a project that uses 2 screens and one GPU per screen.  My code selects each component by its address.  But when I try to bind a gpu to a screen I get the error: attempt to call field 'bind' (a nil value).

local component = require("component")
local term = require("term")
local gpu = component.get("3085")
local screen = component.get("40c6")


I have verified that the addresses are correct and I have tried to assign the components to their full addresses.  I'm sure my mistake is pretty simple.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Your error is indeed pretty simple. The method component.get returns the full address of a component, which is a string, not an object(table) with methods. In OC it's called a component proxy. Try this out and feel free to ask more questions either in this thread or via PM.

local component = require("component")
local term = require("term")
local gpu_address = component.get("3085") -- # this returns the components full address from an abbreviated one
local screen_address = component.get("40c6")

local gpu = component.proxy( gpu_address ) -- # get a 'proxy' to the gpu component
gpu.bind( screen_address ) -- # call .bind from the proxy
