cannot save data

Postby jethrotull » Wed Nov 29, 2006 16:33

I have a great problem with saving data produced by the MDS (Multidimensional Scaling) widget. The "save" button in the Save File widget (attached to the output of the MDS) properties is disabled or does not work.
here's my test data:
and the ows:
any help will be greatly appreciated

Update: the MDS widget does not seem to produce any data on its output at all. No visualizasion widget work when connected to the MDS's output.

yet another update: I'm working on windows xp. Someone reported the same bug on linux, and the bug was claimed to be platform specific.

I cant replicate this problem.
Are you sure you selected pressed the "Send selection" button or have the "Auto send selected" check box checked

Many thanks!

When I attempt to use the save widget to save an example table, I get this error:
Unhandled exception of type occured at 11:40:54:
File: in line 60
Function name: __call__
Code: self.method(*k)
File: in line 77
Function name: browseFile
Code: filename = str(dlg.selectedFile())
Exception type:
Exception value: selectedFile

All I have in my canvas is the file widget, set to, with its output going to the save widget.

Windows XP, Python 2.5, orange 0.9.66

Any help for this relative newbie appreciated!


also cannot save

I am having the same problem and get the same error messages. I cannot save to a file, even when the save widget is directly connected to the file widget. I know data is getting out of the file widget because when I also connect it to the data table widget then I can see the data. Is there some trick to entering the file name, because when I try to save again I don't see the previous file name listed?

Thanks, Vilis Nams

Henry, Vilis, can you try with the snapshot? Just download it and install it over the existing installation. We're in the debugging phase, so the """stable""" release has typically more bugs than the snapshot.


File Save works

Yes, the File Save widget works in todays snapshot.
Thanks, Vilis
