Could someone please give me a pointer as to why my use of appendText fails?
This is my first bit of programming for 30 years - I'm sorry if its an idiot mistake :)
The program has 2 text fields. You paste a list of url's into the first box (area1), hit the 'Convert' button, and it (should) output a list of properly formatted links in area2 ready to paste into a web page.
http://www.domain.com/file/pics/01_Overview.jpg becomes <a href=http://www.domain.com/file/pics/01_Overview.jpg target=_blank>http://www.domain.com/file/pics/01_Overview.jpg</a>
The code snippet I have works perfectly, but nothing gets output to box 2.
If I un-comment the 2 print lines, the link's 'ref' and contents get printed in the interpreter exactly as it should be.
def on_Convert_mouseClick(self, event): amountOfLines = self.components.TextArea1.getNumberOfLines() ref=0 while ref < amountOfLines: line = self.components.TextArea1.getLineText(ref) line = '<a href='+line+' target=_blank>'+line+'</a>\n' self.components.TextArea2.appendText = (line) # print ref # print line ref=ref+1
