twk posted a topic in Python ScriptingGreetings all, Functions mentioned in title [vs.GetProjectUserNames(), vs.GetResourceTags()] return NoneTypes, not sure whether this is broken. From the DevWiki: http://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/VS:GetProjectUserNames Description : Get a list of userids that are part of the current project. def vs.GetProjectUserNames(): return (BOOLEAN, userArray) userArray | ARRAY : Array of userids as strings However, upon running this in a Project File, I get a Boolean of True, but a NoneType for userArray. Not sure how to iterate through list of results. This is the same with vs.GetResourceTags(): From the DevWiki: Description : Gets the tags attached to the specified resource. def vs.GetResourceTags(handle): return tags tags | ARRAY : Array of tags Running this on Symbol Definition handle, with tags attached yields a NoneType as well. The Symbol Definition has got tag(s), and running vs.GetNumResourceTags(some_handle) returns the correct number of tags attached to this resource. Any insight would help, @orso b. schmid/ @Pat Stanford
From this previous post by me Viewport Class Overrides and the like If you allow a hook into the line type and pen thicknesses at least, it would save us heaps of hours having to select a viewport and pain-stakingly scroll through 100's of classes to find the one your looking for and override it. Also using the eyedropper for VP class overrides and visibilities is ok until you have two viewports that you want to eyedropper a single class' properties across without carrying properties of any other class. You can't do this, which we need to be able to do. If there was such a function through VS/Python/SDK we could fix this ourselves. How do we go about asking for additional functionality to be added to the scripting language? or SDK? Is it through here - Wishlist forum? Kind regards Tui
Greetings all, 1.Third Party Development -would be great to have a section somewhere on the Dev Wiki or here on the forums where third party plugin developers can goto, to request for additional procedures/functions to the existing API calss (eg Viewport Class Overrides!), and also to see a roadmap of upcoming changes to the existing API (eg a number of calls are dropped from version 2012). To help us prepare for the yearly releases. Unless this is already available that I don't know of. 2. Project Management. -our office has just started using the Project Sharing feature, and it has been running smoothly so far. With the ability to comment on every change/commit a user does has been a great way for us to track what everyone doing. It would be great if this commenting feature could be added to non-project sharing files as you can add comments/notes/remarks to your file that your working on, and go back through the history of that particular file and see what you've done and when. Cheers Tui
