I’m trying to understand the scripting environment a bit more for qApps and have a few questions.
- For a table driven canvas I can pass one of table column values as a parameter to a parser. Is it possible to pass any other types of variables to a parser, say from another script? If so, how do you make it so that the variable is in scope for the parser
- Is it possible to access those table columns from a table driven canvas in scripts attached to a following table? If so, what’s the syntax you need to use?
- What is the Variable Mapping option in the Run Options dialog used for?
Many thanks in advance…
Q1: Is it possible to pass any other types of variables to a parser, say from another script?
Ans: One common use case that I could think of is "define input variables" and then use that input variables in parser
Q2: for you to be able to access certain columns from a previous table, in a later table's script, you need to use "$" and you will get the available options. Look below for example
Q3 let's you define same variable name for different parsers
