Debugging Python Script
In Scorpion Python’s standard console is transferred to the Scorpion' console window. This means that the python statement print can be used to debug Python Scripts.

  • print ' A -',A   # prints the the content of variable A to the console window

The console window can be activated from the python script editor.

Syntax Errors

A syntax error GetBValue will result in that the line is highligted in red. The status bar displays the error message from the python interpreter. In this example : NameError : name  'GetBValue' is not defined

Runtime Errors

Console Window

When establishing a script, error messages from the Python interpreter are routed to this window. If you use the Python print command, output will show up in the console window. More information.
