I am trying to create a save as dialog popup. The script prompts for the user to input a file name and file type however I keep getting this error before it stops running:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 21, in AttributeError: 'HtmlTextArea' object has no attribute 'ExportText'


import System

from System.IO import FileStream, FileMode

from Spotfire.Dxp.Application.Visuals import TablePlot

from Spotfire.Dxp.Data.Export import DataWriterTypeIdentifiers


import clr


from System.Windows.Forms import SaveFileDialog


SaveFile = SaveFileDialog()

SaveFile.Filter = "Excel Workbook (*.xlsx)|*.xlsx" #file type saving to


saveFilename = SaveFile.FileName

print "saveFilename=", saveFilename


from Spotfire.Dxp.Application.Visuals import VisualContent,TablePlotColumnSortMode

from Spotfire.Dxp.Data.Export import DataWriterTypeIdentifiers

from System.IO import File, StreamWriter


writer = Document.Data.CreateDataWriter(DataWriterTypeIdentifiers.ExcelXlsDataWriter)

stream = StreamWriter(saveFilename)

te = summaryCrossTable.As[VisualContent]()

te.ExportText(stream) # the error occurs here
