I have created a simple gateway event script for testing.
c = a+b
And i have named this script as Test
After saving the script, i have waited for this to execute automatically but didnt work.
if i run the same script in script console, it is working… I believe there is nothing wrong with this test script.
I just wanna run this Test script automatically, Anyone pls tell me how to do that?
When you create a gateway event script you have to choose what event is to trigger it. Your options are:
- Tag Change
Which did you choose and what was the trigger?
I have created the Test script under the Scripting section,
Could you pls tell me to run that script?
That’s a library script, not an event script. Library scripts don’t run unless an event calls a function within them. One of the events @Transistor listed.
Edit: Also note that when you have an event that calls
Test.test(), the first time will yield two calls to
test(), since you include a call at the top level of the library script. The top level runs once, to completion, the first time any member of it is accessed. (Like an auto-import.)
Another thing to note here is that
print 'hi' in the gateway context - you will never see this.
You need to use a logger to log your messages to the gateway.
logger = system.util.getLogger("My Logger")
c = a + b
logger.info("Value of c is %i"%(c))
is how you would be able to see results in your gateway logs.
You need to be more precise in your writing. Your question title says “event script”. I now suspect that you mean you have written it in the Project Library.
You can run a Project Library script from a button.
- Right-click the button.
- Select Configure Events ….
- Select onActionPerformed, hit + and select Script.
- Add the path and name of script.
I was doing it in multiple ways, forgot to rename it.
