Using 7.6.3 in Windows Server.
If I do
runScript(int('20'), 10000) that runs fine.
However, if I define a function in the script module as ‘app.test.run()’
And call thusly in an Expression tag:
Nothing. Just the dread red x and null. And nothing shows up in the console. Same deal with non-trivial functions that work in the playground.
Am I doing something wrong?
And I figured out the reason it won’t run is that it’s in a non-Client Expression tag.
Is there not a way to run multi-line python code in a non-Client tag?
You are right, the app.* functions are in the project and SQLTags are not (except for Client Tags) so there is no way to call app.* from an Expression Tag. There is a sneaky way to get around the one line of code limitation, but it will be difficult to troubleshoot errors. You can use the newline character (\n) in a script to create multiple lines of code.
So I guess my feature request would be a callable gateway script module
Glad I found a workaround to my issue, because I’m not going anywhere near that newline hack.
Global Script Modules are planned for Ignition 7.7: viewtopic.php?f=70&t=11069
These should be callable from runScript.
