rs.IsGroupEmtpy() seems to be always returning true with a valid group_name input. Fixes?
This is the code being executed
def IsGroupEmpty(group_name): """Verifies that an existing group is empty, or contains no object members Parameters: group_name = the name of an existing group Returns: True or False if group_name exists None if group_name does not exist """ if not isinstance(group_name, str): group_name = str(group_name) index = scriptcontext.doc.Groups.Find(group_name, True) if index<0: return scriptcontext.errorhandler() return scriptcontext.doc.Groups.GroupObjectCount(index)>0
My guess is that the last line give the error, but by all means verify that by yourself. An alternative is to do for the last line
return len(scriptcontext.doc.Groups.GroupMembers(index)) > 0
Thanks, menno. Tried your suggestion with same results as before which led me to realize that the code is executing properly but that there is a semantic issue with the function; “IsGroupEmpty” should logically return true if the group is empty, and false if it is not. This implementation does the opposite so…
return not scriptcontext.doc.Groups.GroupObjectCount(index)>0
…produces the expected result.
Steve, if you’re listening how should I best go about reporting such an issue? On your git page?
edit: nevermind, the git page answered my question
