How to request IronPython to change x and y ratios in Map Appearance property

Recommended Posts


I am an absolute newbie in IronPython. Also, as an early FORTRAN user, Inever faced a strong need to learn any object-oriented language other than copy/pasting code snippets.

However I am now finalizing a Spotfire dashboard that requires to automate the following manual process:

1.Open Map visualization Properties window

2.Click on Appearance branch

3.Change the values for both Y and X Ratio Settings to other than default 1:1

4. Close


I hope these values are the x and y described athttps://docs.tibco.com/pub/doc_remote/sfire_dev/area/doc/api/TIB_sfire-analyst_api/topic=html/M_Spotfire_Dxp_Application_Visuals_Maps_MapChartTransform_FromScales.htmin Spotfire API.

I am now trying to figure out the code to change it.

I made the below attempt that seemedto be logical for me without spending time onreading IronPython basics

from Spotfire.Dxp.Application.Visuals.Maps import *


#v1 is defined in Script Parameters




map.MapChartTransform.FromScales().x = 2

map.MapChartTransform.FromScales().y = 150

but got the error message: "AttributeError: 'MapChart' object has no attribute 'MapChartTransform'"

I think I am close to the solution, but not exactly there. What would you recommend to change in mycode other than RTFM

Thanks in advance, Dmitry


PS: a mem, just in case "If you want users to RTFM, make better FMs"
