For loop binding Perspective

Hi all,

I have a question about for loop in bindings, is this possible?

I tried a for loop for looping through a list of users and check if the user has a role, but it doesn’t work.

I tried the following code:

for x in range(len(self.session.props.auth.user.roles)):
if self.session.props.auth.user.roles == ‘Operator’:
return ‘true’
return ‘false’

I’m thinking about the performance because it loops continuous, which means the performance degrade, but I don’t know if this is right?

Are you trying to use Python in an expression binding? That won’t work. You can only use Expression Functions - Ignition User Manual 8.1 - Ignition Documentation.

Essential tip: use the </> code formatting button to format your code and preserve indentation. This is essential for Python. Can you edit your question to fix it? Thanks.

Think you just want to use the hasRole expression - hasRole - Ignition User Manual 8.0 - Ignition Documentation
