public class AnalogPotentiometer
extends Object
implements Potentiometer, Sendable, AutoCloseable
Class for reading analog potentiometers. Analog potentiometers read in an analog voltage that corresponds to a position. The position is in whichever units you choose, by way of the scaling and offset constants passed to the constructor.

      public AnalogPotentiometer​(int channel, double fullRange, double offset)
      AnalogPotentiometer constructor.

      Use the fullRange and offset values so that the output produces meaningful values. I.E: you have a 270 degree potentiometer and you want the output to be degrees with the halfway point as 0 degrees. The fullRange value is 270.0(degrees) and the offset is -135.0 since the halfway point after scaling is 135 degrees. This will calculate the result from the fullRange times the fraction of the supply voltage, plus the offset.

      Parameters:
      channel - The analog input channel this potentiometer is plugged into. 0-3 are on-board and 4-7 are on the MXP port.
      fullRange - The scaling to multiply the fraction by to get a meaningful unit.
      offset - The offset to add to the scaled value for controlling the zero value

      Parameters:
      input - The AnalogInput this potentiometer is plugged into.
      fullRange - The angular value (in desired units) representing the full 0-5V range of the input.
      offset - The angular value (in desired units) representing the angular output at 0V.

      public AnalogPotentiometer​(int channel, double scale)
      AnalogPotentiometer constructor.

      Use the scale value so that the output produces meaningful values. I.E: you have a 270 degree potentiometer and you want the output to be degrees with the starting point as 0 degrees. The scale value is 270.0(degrees).

      Parameters:
      channel - The analog input channel this potentiometer is plugged into. 0-3 are on-board and 4-7 are on the MXP port.
      scale - The scaling to multiply the voltage by to get a meaningful unit.
