[scribus] problems with the Scripter
lists at wibr.de
Sat Jul 9 18:02:58 UTC 2011
while writing my first lines using the scripter API some things came up:
1. it would be nice if the version of python, which is used by the
scripter, appears somewhere in the documentation
2. can I somehow use "print" in my scripts / see the output of that? It
would be convenient for debugging, now I use messageBoxes, but a simple
print would be better. I tried to use the integrated console, but it had
some problems with my indentations. (worked fine without console, though)
3. I use importPage() for duplicating pages. However, it takes the
filename as an argument, not a file object. So it reloads the file every
time again, which is quite slow...it would be better if I could load the
file once and then use it many times...
4. Now the problem why I got stuck:
At some point of my script I have something like this:
for oneItem in scribus.getPageItems():
if oneItem == 4: # 4 = Textfield
test1=oneItem+' '+str(pageCounter # it e.g. 'Text50 3'
test2=scribus.getText(oneItem)# empty! but it's not!
So I don't know why the getText would return an empty string, since
there is definitely some Text in this text field. (I checked manually
after the script was done)
Any ideas on this?
