I have built an application that runs a command line tool using an asynchronous shell, as a control in my main window. Works just fine.
I’m trying to rewrite the application so that I can insatiate multiple instances of a shell so that I can split the work I’m doing in that one shell.
In my preliminary testing the shell isn’t working. I’ve subleased a Shell object and coded the methods and properties I need but when I run the subclassed shell’s method (
self.execute(theCommand)) I do get a
Completedevent firing but no
Self.result. (I am expecting a result – if I run the exact same command through the shell as a control in the window I get the result I expect… and at least some error string in the result if there is anything wrong with
Here is where I instantiate a shell instance, set the properties and invoke the method:
divideIntoBatches(projectFolder) var stamper_01 As new StamperShell stamper_01.ExecuteMode = shell.ExecuteModes.Asynchronous stamper_01.Canonical = False stamper_01.TimeOut = 0 stamper_01.Arguments = "" stamper_01.myBatch = batch_01 stamper_01.searchString = SearchStringTextfield.value stamper_01.stampRefID
Any thoughts as to why it might not be working?
