Is it possible to run a Python script with IQAN tools? Such as IQANrun or IQANscript?


IQANscript Change Project ID

Johan Palm 8 months ago in IQANscript updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 7 months ago 1


We create script "templates" which include common tasks such as prompts to get a backup clone before proceeding, conditional execution based on parameters, etc.

A template is used to create scripts where it is OK to share the plaintext limited access password, but also to create scripts where we want to limit the use to certain users and thus only issue limited access safe passwords.

To accomplish this today we need to either (1) change the limited access password (users will need to delete/overwrite any previously saved password from the Password Manager) or (2) import/copy the entire template to another script (and set up new full and limited access passwords). Either way is not very practical.

It would be nice if IQANscript could include the same Project Properties dialog as IQANdesign, which includes the possibility to change the project ID. Introducing the Project Properties dialog would in my opinion be an overall improvement, with a better overview of the project name, version, description, author, and especially multi-line comments.


Cannot open Script manager panel

I closed the Script manager panel in View > Script manager. 

Now I can't open it again what ever I try.


Gauge in IQANscript 6

Wilfred Sijtsma | Hytrans® 1 year ago in IQANscript updated 1 year ago 2

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 1 year ago in IQANscript updated 1 year 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 2 years ago in IQANscript updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 years 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).

Script hangs on switch-else despite switch-case evaluated to true

Johan Palm 2 years ago in IQANscript updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 years ago 5

The attached script was created in IQANscript and tested in IQANrun as well as IQANrun

Creating the script in IQANscript makes no difference.

The script hangs on a blank page in IQANrun after either switch-case has evaluated to true and it's not possible to continue execution.

Show send/get options dialog for IQANrun

Pawel Pekala 3 years ago in IQANscript updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 3 years ago 1

When default FP value change or needs to be corrected during program development, IQAN design allows you to overwrite original defaults when sending new program file. This would be a helpful option to have in IQAN Run.
