In 7.9 we used the runScript expression to call shared scripts for various activities. In 8.0 I’m attempting to do the same, but any script I put into the runScript always fails.
For instance, I have this test shared script to be able to check if things are working:
Located in ESP.Standards.TagHelpers script
return 'Hello World'
I’m attempting to use it in a tag expression type like this:
I only get errors back when looking at the diagnostics for the tag.
Specifically the Quality is:
Error executing script for runScript() expression:ESP.Standards.TagHelpers.test()
and the Last Published Value is:
[null, Error_ExpressionEval(“Error executing script for runScript() expression:ESP.Standards.TagHelpers.test()”), Tue Oct 08 07:56:39 EDT 2019 (1570535799279)]
The script runs fine when I drop it into the script console. The script also runs fine when dropped into a window, it just seems to struggle with being in a tag.
Try it without the parentheses.
Error executing script for runScript() expression:ESP.Standards.TagHelpers.test
I think it need to be in the global project. Tags don’t run things down to the project level.
Yep… this new version is bending my mind a little bit.
OK… I found it in another forum post that my google-fu couldn’t find.
I have a global project for all the projects called ESPGlobal and I just changed from global to ESPGlobal. Once I did that bingo things are back and working.
