comment Is there a way to refresh imported modules in a ArcGIS Python Toolbox?
Super, thanks for reporting back. Yeah, when driving ArcMap, I sometimes feel like a Crash Test Dummy.

comment ArcPy symbolize layer if a value is correct
Could you explain what happens when you try and extend the principle. Is there an error? If so what is it and where does it happen?

comment Re-Distributing Python Toolbox
To be sure I understand, for my purposes, using setup.py would be suitable? If I wanted something cleaner, an exe (made with the bdist_wininst command) would be better, but a toolbox distributed this way would need to be uninstalled before the next version is installed?

comment How to perform Tool Validation in Python Toolbox?
Hmm... I'll try putting my code in updateMessages(), I had it in updateParameters(). It must be that any messages I am trying to show are being overwritten by the validating step. I'll try it out first chance I get. Thanks!

comment How to perform Tool Validation in Python Toolbox?
That's what I thought at first, but it didn't work at all. I even tried str(parameters[7].value).count(). No luck. I got .value.value from here. Near the bottom: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#/…
