Fetching specific cell from datatable using ironpython

Hello Baljeet,

You can use the DataTable.Select() to limit the selection and the retrieve the required value.

Can you try the following script

from Spotfire.Dxp.Data import *

from System.Collections.Generic import List



# select an expression to limit the data in a table

rowSelection=table.Select('Period = "2017-2"')


# Create a cursor to the Column we wish to get the values from

cursor = DataValueCursor.CreateFormatted(table.Columns["Sales"])


# Create List object that will hold values



# Loop through all rows, retrieve value for specific column,

# and add value into list

for row in table.GetRows(rowSelection.AsIndexSet(),cursor):

rowIndex = row.Index

value1 = cursor.CurrentValue




for val in listofValues:

print val

Hi Team,


I have a similar query. 


I have a data table. I am taking an input from user from text input field and need to search a column for value to be found or not. if value found, then I want the whole row from the table to be returned.


Can you suggest a psudo code for the same. For security reasons, I can't share my progress. But I am new to ironpython and spotfire. I developed the code in regular python (spyder) first and now trying to fit that in ironpython. Please suggest.


Thanks in anticipation,
