Python scripts does not work completely


I run into a bit strange issue when using python in Spotfire 6.5. When running the script in Edit Script window (click on Run Script) or via a button, it works fine.

But when I attached the script to a document property to trigger on change, only part of the script works.

Has anyone encounter something similar?


Edit: added script. This cript run just fine in the edit window or via a button, but if attached to a property control, it does not work on value change.

from Spotfire.Dxp.Application.Visuals import *

#color the chart using same scheme
myColors = [['Yield',0]
            ,['Crude Stream',0]]

#loop through each page to get the coloring scheme of bar chart
for p in Document.Pages:
    for myC in myColors:
        if p.Title == myC[0]:
            for v in p.Visuals: #get the bar chart
                if v.TypeId == VisualTypeIdentifiers.BarChart: #get the coloring scheme
                    myC[1] = v.As[VisualContent]().ColorAxis.Coloring

            for v in p.Visuals: #get the pie chart
                if v.TypeId == VisualTypeIdentifiers.PieChart: #apply coloring scheme



I think you need to attach your .dxp file itself since there is definitely something else interfering here

I think it has something to do with the order in which the script is executed.

I have a bar chart that change color based on the same document property value. I guess the script does not wait until the chart change to execute the rest ...

Any idea to get around?
