passing [class-scope] variables to between methods?

46
Hey Guys

I know I am missing some important points on how to use the python language. Is it possible to pass variables between methods (is that what theyare called?)

in my attempt below I have an initial definition that gets users input in 2 text fields and uses that later down the script to create a bunch of directories once the button "GO!!!" is clicked.

I get this error:
jobfolder = a
NameError: global name 'a' is not defined


but i defined it up in the beginning of the script.

Any ideas?

Apologies for all the questions forum posts - I'll stop soon!

It's all about the "scope" of a variable.
Inside your __init__() function, the variable a only has life in that scope (the method - or function, if you prefer- scope). The object that is directing the show is the Dialog. The reason that self (this Dialog) is present in every method definition is so that the given method has access to the object scope (self.whatever). So, if you want a variable to live outside a function, make it an attribute of the object:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. self.useDescriptiveNamesForAttributes = .....
These are in effect "global", but only in the object scope (encapsulation).

Hope that's not too confusing...

Hi,

attach the variable to your class,

line 15: self.myVariable

then in the method

def OnCreateJob():
self.myVariable...

I notice that you are doing several things in a debatable manner.
1) Assigning IDs as absolutes is a definite no-no. It's bound to cause problems down the road:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. wxID_SEGMENTDIALOGRECORDBUTTON = wx.NewId()
That's actually a generated name, yours could be shorter.

2) Button events should be bound to the button and not the parent:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. # <snipped from Dialog subclass>
  2.         self.RecordButton = wx.Button(id=wxID_SEGMENTDIALOGRECORDBUTTON, label='Record Station', name='RecordButton', parent=self.panel1, pos=wx.Point(816, 20), size=wx.Size(173, 36), style=0)
  3.         self.RecordButton.Bind(wx.EVT_BUTTON, self.OnRecordButton, id=wxID_SEGMENTDIALOGRECORDBUTTON)

  3.         self.RecordButton.Bind(wx.EVT_BUTTON, self.OnRecordButton, id=wxID_SEGMENTDIALOGRECORDBUTTON)
Making a Button (or even StaticText) an attribute of the Dialog may seem like just an extra variable in you class's name space, but it actually comes in handy very quickly. You may soon find that you want to disable, change the color of, (or a host of other things) any one of these little GUI devils (it happens to me, anyway).

Hey Guys

Thanks for your help. I kind of understand but a lot of it is flying right over my head. :)

BjornB I tried what I think you said to do - but I think I didn't really understand.

I changed the variables "a" & "b" to self.a & self.b in the "class NewJob" in the "def __int__".

Mind taking a look?

Hey BartonC,

does that mean that rather than doing this:
wx.Button(self, 2, 'Quit', (50, 150))

i should do:
self.QuitButton = wx.Button(self, 2, 'Quit', (50, 150))

Thanks for all your help!

First: Yes, you got what Bjorn was conveying.

Second: I treat (well, I would if I wrote the GUI layout part - Boa Constructor does that for me) GUI elements the same as other variables that are needed in the Class Scope (such as self.a and self.b in your post). And I can't stress enough how important it is to use better naming for your variables. Here is a thread discussing naming conventions in Python. You'll like yourself much more when you go back into a piece of code later and find things like "veryDescriptiveNameStr" rather than "a".

Hope that make sense.

hey guys

thanks for all your help so far - sorry I havent got back to your replies - distracted with work

I think I understand what u mean by giving everything descriptive names and assigning them as self. and flexible IDs

Does this look better?

It still doesn't work - I cant seem to convert a string to an integer - this error:

line 128, in OnCreateJob
os.mkdir( self.jobfolder)
TypeError: coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, TextCtrl found

Any ideas how to get that to convert to a string?
i thought this would work:
int( self.NumberOfShots)

but get this:
TypeError: int() argument must be a string or a number

Cheers!!

Adam

hey guys

thanks for all your help so far - sorry I havent got back to your replies - distracted with work

I think I understand what u mean by giving everything descriptive names and assigning them as self. and flexible IDs

Does this look better?

It still doesn't work - I cant seem to convert a string to an integer - this error:

line 128, in OnCreateJob
os.mkdir( self.jobfolder)
TypeError: coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, TextCtrl found

Any ideas how to get that to convert to a string?
i thought this would work:
int( self.NumberOfShots)

but get this:
TypeError: int() argument must be a string or a number

Cheers!!

Adam
It's starting to look good (even better with "=python" in the code tags).
A couple of things:
str() will convert pure python Types (objects with __str__() methods) to strings.
In order to get a value from a GUI object, call one of its "getter" (almost always starts with "Get") functions.

I'm not going to run this on my machine so we'll just have to work out the bugs long-distance.

Get rid of
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.         self.jobfolder = str( self.JobName)
In the event handler (and I'm beginning to doubt the logic behind creating so many directories in response to an event) where you need the value of a GUI element,
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. #
  2.  
  3. #
  4.         #CREATE JOB DIRECTORY
  5.         jobFolderName = self.JobName.GetValue() 
  6.         os.mkdir( jobFolderName)

You are welcome.

I highly recommend hitting the "buy the book" link on the wxPython home page. Your purchase helps pay for the project is some small way and the info in there is invaluable.
