I’m making a button in the
AddCards menu, that pulls in data from an online dictionary, and sets the fields accordingly.
I found the
Editor class, but it seems very complicated with the fields themselves in JS. I couldn’t find any methods to edit the fields programatically in that file.
Would I need to run my own JS similar to how
loadNote works? Is there some way to sync the note object with the JS, edit it, then send it back to JS?
I’m not really sure how to do this (this is my first addon) so I’d appreciate the help
I’m not allowed to put links in my post, so here are the files I used for reference:
You can access field content with
note.items(). It returns a list of key-value pairs, so you can read each field’s content with
value and decide if changes should be made.
After you’ve made changes, call
note.flush() to write them to the database (except in add mode).
def write_field_contents(note, contents : [str], addMode=False):
for i, (key, value) in enumerate(note.items()):
note[key] = contents[i]
if not addMode:
Thanks, this seems to do something, when I close it now asks to save changes.
The UI is not updating, however.
Managed to fix this with a call to
loadNoteKeepingFocus. Thanks so much!
