MD 2015 Python Interface problem

I assume that the Python Interface extension distributed with Moneydance 2015 should be operational.

I have tried several of the python scripts on the Extension Development page and none of them seem to work.

This simple script fails with the following error

ra = moneydance.getRootAccount()
acct = ra.getAccountByName('Complete Access')
bal=str(acct.getBalance())
print acct.getAccountName()+' $'+bal[0:-2]+'.'+bal[-2:]
# SCRIPT WORKS AS EXPECTED UP TO THIS POINT
txns = ra.getTransactionSet().getTransactionsForAccount(acct).getAllTxns()
# SCRIPT FAILS ON LINE ABOVE WITH
# Attributeerror: getTransactionSet
for txn in txns:
    print repr(txn)

I'm not sure if the Python Interface Extension is ready for prime time yet but it will be great once its working as python scripting is so handy

Thanks
Allan

    PS I have tried this on 2015.3 (1175) and 2015.4 (1205)

    Hi Allan,

    Sorry about that. The python extension itself is fine, but the example scripts haven't yet been updated to work with the new API that is available in MD2015.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Hi Sean

    Thanks for the heads up. Just a clarification - does the API documentation - http://infinitekind.com/dev/apidoc/index.html - from your Developer page reflect the MD 2015 API?

    PS thanks for the great work on this application. I've tried so many applications over the years and this is best and most flexible solution I've found.

    Hi Allan,

    Thanks for the kind words! Yes, that URL does point to the Moneydance 2015 documentation.

    Cheers,
    Sean

    I can't get my code to work from MD 2014 in MD 2015. Is there any migration guide please?
    ie:
    # SCRIPT WORKS AS EXPECTED UP TO THIS POINT
    txns = ra.getTransactionSet().getTransactionsForAccount(acct).getAllTxns()
    # SCRIPT FAILS ON LINE ABOVE WITH
    # Attributeerror: getTransactionSet

    This works for me in MD2015

    root=moneydance.getCurrentAccountBook()
    ra = root.getRootAccount()
    acct = ra.getAccountByName(accountname)
    txns = root.getTransactionSet().getTransactionsForAccount(acct)

    Cheers

    Thanks you very much that goes a step further.

    Now ra.getSubAccounts() used to get all subaccounts and now it only gets the first level. Any ideas how this can be fixed please?

    On another note: How on earth can the whole API be changed in 2015 and not any of the samples?? ie: http://infinitekind.com/developer

    Hi Patrick

    Glad that helped. Like you, I am experimenting with the Python interface and worked out the code I sent you from an example I saw in the forum.

    I haven’t got any sub accounts so have not tried experimenting with retrieving them.

    I would recommend studying the new data model (http://infinitekind.com/dev/apidoc/index.html <http://infinitekind.com/dev/apidoc/index.html>) which is how I’m discovering the interface. I am sure the infinitekind team will update the example scripts eventually.
