I am trying to build a a library of scripts to call inside the QGis Python console/Python editior. I do not understand why they work independently, but not when being called from another script. Example:
file c:\scripts\A.py def create_copy(input,output): layer = QgsVectorLayer(input, "input", "ogr") error = QgsVectorFileWriter.writeAsVectorFormat(layer, output, "utf-8", None, "ESRI Shapefile")
I can call that function, from within the same script:
works as intended.
Now if I call this from another script, like so:
file c:\scripts\B.py import sys sys.path.insert(0, r'c:\scripts') import A A.create_copy(r"z:\original.shp", r"z:\copy.shp")
NameError: global name 'QgsVectorLayer' is not defined.
Even though the call is made from within the QGis Python Editor. What am I missing?
