self.machine.hardware_platforms[‘virtual’]

class mpf.platforms.virtual.VirtualHardwarePlatform(machine)

Bases: mpf.core.platform.AccelerometerPlatform, mpf.core.platform.I2cPlatform, mpf.core.platform.ServoPlatform, mpf.core.platform.LightsPlatform, mpf.core.platform.SwitchPlatform, mpf.core.platform.DriverPlatform, mpf.core.platform.DmdPlatform, mpf.core.platform.RgbDmdPlatform, mpf.core.platform.SegmentDisplayPlatform, mpf.core.platform.StepperPlatform, mpf.core.platform.HardwareSoundPlatform

Base class for the virtual hardware platform.

Accessing the virtual platform via code

Hardware platforms are stored in the self.machine.hardware_platforms dictionary, so the virtual platform is available via self.machine.hardware_platforms['virtual'].
