Reading Product ID

Simple question.
How can I get a ray cast sensor to read product ID from an object it detects?
I will admit I’m not the best at python programing but I’ve been trying to make this work for a day with not much to show for it. If anyone has a solution or could point me in the right direction it would be highly appreciated

Add a component signal on your raycast sensor.

then look up for that signal in script
Signal1=comp.findBehaviour(“CompSignal1”)

then read the signal value which is component and then from component properties read that ID or what ever you need.

  if signal ==Signal1 and signal.Value!=None:
     part =signal.Value
     ID=part.getProperty("ID")

Thanks @Unnahi for the help! I got it to work.
I managed to print out product ID after it passes the sensor , now i will be able to use it for further logic. Just a small note for anyone in the future , to use the product ID you need to add .Value to the variable it stored at.

Code I used for anyone’s convenience

from vcScript import *

comp = getComponent()
Signal1 = comp.findBehaviour("CompSignal1")


def OnSignal( signal ):
  if signal == Signal1 and signal.Value!=None:
     part = signal.Value
     idProp = part.getProperty('ID')
     print idProp.Value
