This is my first attempt on Python script.
I followed a simple 2-line sample Hello World script found here -
It is a simple 2-line code :
import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs
rs.MessageBox (“Hello World”)
A Microsoft VBScript compilation error message appeared.
Error: Expected end of statement in Line 1
Is “import” a keyword? But I can’t find any references. What am I missing?
Thanks for reading.
VBScript compile and Python?
Did you select RhinoScript instead of python?
That was a great help. It runs now.
The instructions could be more clearer at least on Rhino 6 version.
To test the Script:
- Start Rhino
Missing Critical Step - Go to Tools->PythonScript
- At the command prompt, type EditPythonScript and press Enter.
- The Edit Script dialog box appears.
- In the script Code window, type the code sample above.
- Click the “Run the script” button.
that opens up the edit dialog, the same as going tools->pythonscript through the meu:
I take it back. The instructions are correct. It was my error by using RhinoScript editor. Lesson learned.
