  • How to execute any IronPython script from the JavaScript (mashup API) in Spotfire®


    An IronPython script stored in a Spotfire® analysis can be configured to be triggered when a document property in changes. Using this technique we can execute IronPythin scripts from the JavaScript API. This allows a user to use the full power of the Spotfire scripting capabilities inside the JavaScript mashups.

    Introduction

    An IronPython script stored in a Spotfire® analysis can be configured to be triggered when a document property in changes. Using this technique we can execute IronPython scripts from the JavaScript API. This allows a user to use the full power of the Spotfire scripting capabilities inside the JavaScript mashups. Note that scripting is not enabled on Spotfire Cloud web clients.

    Step-by-step description:

    1. Define the selected IronPython script to execute when the property is updated.
    2. Create a new document property in the Spotfire Analyst client and define a script trigger.

    3. Modify the property by calling the Document.setDocumentProperty method in the JavaScript code where you want the script to trigger.
    // Define the Spotfire handle
    var webPlayer = new spotfire.webPlayer.Application(server, customization);
    webPlayer.onOpened(onOpenedCallback);
    ...
    
    // Callback triggered after analysis is opened
    function onOpenedCallback(analysisDocument)
    {
    	// Modify property to trigger Spotfire script xyz
    	analysisDocument.setDocumentProperty("abc", "someValue");
    }
