Pulse and enable a driver. Cancel pulse and enable if switch is released.

Parameters:
  • enable_switch – Switch which triggers the rule.
  • driver – Driver to trigger.
  • pulse_setting
    class PulseRuleSettings
  • hold_settings
    class HoldRuleSettings
set_pulse_on_hit_and_release_rule(enable_switch: mpf.core.platform_controller.SwitchRuleSettings, driver: mpf.core.platform_controller.DriverRuleSettings, pulse_setting: mpf.core.platform_controller.PulseRuleSettings = None) → mpf.core.platform_controller.HardwareRule
