valueChanged error

Trying to create a valueChanged script with a numeric entry field. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

code:
‘’’
import string
x = previousValue.value
y = currentValue.value
if self.view.custom.PM.ewonType == 1:
if x != y:
server = “AWS Mosquitto”
topic = self.session.custom.Location[0].countryName+"/"+self.session.custom.Location[0].stateName+"/"+str(self.view.custom.PM.depotID)+"/"+self.view.params.id+"/Screw Speed"

		param = str(self.props.value)
		payload = param.encode()
		
		system.cirruslink.engine.publish(server, topic, payload, 0,0)

‘’
i am receiving the below error:

This is the line the error is flagging, and the error is basically saying currentValue isn’t defined (or has a null value)

x = previousValue.value

is actually the true failure line due to line “1” of the script consisting of the script def line.

Your Numeric Entry Field component has no value to start, even though the component itself displays 0.

If you supply an initial value for the Numeric Entry Field, then the script evaluation error will no longer appear.
