Little help with show_input_panel

Little help with show_input_panel

Postby iamntz on Thu May 09, 2013 2:06 pm

Hi guys. So, i have this small plugin that replace # chars with numbers. The problem is that it never worked on ST3 and today i decided to allocate some time to fix it.

Here is the full code: https://gist.github.com/iamntz/5546478

So, when i run the command, i get this error raised:

Code: Select all
ValueError: Edit objects may not be used after the TextCommand's run method has returned

There is some weird issue on this code:

Code: Select all
window.show_input_panel('Count Start:Step', '1:1', countThoseSelections, False, False)

Because if i eliminate that and i just call the countThoseSelections('1:1') method it just works. Also, params is sent to this method by show_input_panel.

I'm kinda out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You lose the edit object when the command returns. You will have to call another command to perform the actual insert. You can use something like

Code: Select all
class BatchReplaceCommand(sublime_plugin.TextCommand):
    def run(self, edit, replace_text, begin_region_point, end_region_point):
        self.view.replace(edit, region, sublime.Region(begin_region_point, end_region_point))

I didn't test that, so you may need to modify it a bit to get it work, but you should be able to get your plugin running.
