What are people using IQAN script for?

mgoutier 2 years ago in IQANscript updated by Nick Pridham 2 years ago 1

I am starting to play with IQAN script and trying to see what the real benefits are. Any insight as to what people are using it for, or if anyone is willing to send me some files to look through and play with (other than the example) I would be interested in dissecting it a bit. 

Any insight is appreciated, thanks in advance.  


iqan script 4.07 & 5.0 execute argument

Brendon 2 years ago in IQANscript updated 2 years ago 4

I am trying to call a cmd file with a variable as an argument from IQAN Script and

Rather than the value of the variable, I get the text written in the argument i.e. %VariableName%

I am just doing a test the file is very basic.

On the script page I set the job number text field, the run command continues the script, then the variable gets set, and then process.cmd gets called.

Everything except the argument is working properly.

Is this a bug?


Generic "Get All Logs" Action in IQANScript

JamesV 4 years ago in IQANscript updated by Michael Carlyle 2 days ago 4


Is it possible when using a script to login and get logs, to just get all logs without having to pick them from the application? I'd like to make 1 generic script that logs in with the Root access and gets all logs for a long list of projects that have differently named logs and different arrangements.

Gauge in IQANscript 6

How can I use a gauge in IQANscript 6. The button to add this function is not responding and in the manual I cannot find any further conditions for adding this function.

Is there a way to access and change the active state of IDC and FGI variables from IQANdesign in IQANscript?


Ability to suppress "Load Variables" Error when path not found

Brendon 3 months ago in IQANscript updated 2 months ago 1

It would be nice if I could suppress this error from occurring.

The idea would be if the variable file didn't exist I could run a script to create the file.

Currently, after the error occurs I can either press 'Abort' or 'Retry', but neither of those proceeds further in the script.

I am using IQAN Script


IQAN Script buttons

Has anyone created a multi-page User Interface in IQAN Script 5/6?

I've previously used IQAN Customize 4 to create a User Interface, almost like a very basic website with a navigation menu to several pages, and some links to kick off scripts.  I am looking to create the same interface using IQAN Script 5/6, but I've run into issues with the Navigation.

IQAN Script doesn't appear to have the same button functionality IQAN Customize had, so I can't simply add a button image and link it to a script.  To combat this I tried using Multiple Choice Menu Buttons, but they don't work if you have 2 or more menus on a screen.  That is because you need to make a selection on both before it'll continue on beyond the screen.

In this image below, I've selected TESTING in the top Navigation menu, there is a Continue function looking at the Measure for both Navigation Menu and Quick Menu.  The Continue function is true, yet it won't continue on past this screen (that is until I also select a button in the Quick Menu).

I think this is a bug, as I've used the Continue function in previous versions of IQAN Script.

I also think that IQAN Script should have the buttons or links added.  For example, if there were <a href> tags that could reference scripts, then I wouldn't require such a workaround.

If a Multiple Choice Menu had a Required (true/false) field this too would resolve this issue.



Get parameter on SP changes type from Integer to State after first run

Johan Palm 10 months ago in IQANscript updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 7 months ago 2

The value type of Get parameter is initially Integer, but after successful execution, the value type changes to State (see bottom right corner) and Script file Check throws a Value type mismatch error for Set variable since it's not allowed to assign State values to Integer script variables.

This was tested with IQANrun, IQANscript, IQANdesign, and IQANsimulate


After execution:

The IQANdesign project used contains only an adjustable empty State parameter channel (SP).
