Hey JMPers!

 

Again a little scripting problem: I would like to add a custom image to a ButtonBox. Sadly it does not work. My script looks like this:

 

New Window("My Window",
	V List Box(
		bb = Button Box("New Project");
	)
);

// bb << Set Icon("JMP"); // This works!
bb <<Set Icon("../imgs/New Project Icon.png"); // => Gives "Unknown" in the log!!!

New Image(Open("../imgs/New Project Icon.png")); // Opens the image. Path seems to work fine

As you can see, JMP is able to find my image, as the last line of the script works without error. But the second to last line produces the message "Unknown" in the log and doe not add the Image to the Button. 

 

Thanks for any advice,

Sebastian

Try using an absolute filepath instead of a relative filepath. A button has its own context and does not know anything about the script that created it.

Change the semicolon to a comma for your button box definition::

bb = Button Box("New Project"),

This works in JMP 13:

a = new window("test",
	b = button box("Bar Chart"),
);

b << set icon("C:\JMP\Icons\icon-48x48-chart_bar.png");
