I am new in Python scripting. I have a geodatabase with layer Test and this layer has field Name and Text element on layout named TEname. I am trying to show selected feature attribute Name value in Text element, but I could not do it. I can print the value for selected feature, but can't show it in Text element.
Here is the code I use:
import arcpy mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("current") TEname = arcpy.mapping.ListLayoutElements(mxd,"TEXT_ELEMENT","Name") for row in arcpy.da.SearchCursor("Test","name") print row ... (u'Land plot 1',) for row in arcpy.da.SearchCursor("Test","name"): TEname.text = row ... TEname.text = row
Runtime error Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 1, in File "c:\program files (x86)\arcgis\desktop10.5\arcpy\arcpy\arcobjects_base.py", line 89, in _set return setattr(self._arc_object, attr_name, cval(val)) RuntimeError: TextElementObject: Error in setting text
