error when trying to import image in pod

Asked by Wesley St.Clair on 2011-09-14

I am still not having luck importing an image using pod. The "note" in my temp.odt file looks like:

do text
from document(at='logo.png')

The Python code I execute is:

from appy.pod.renderer import Renderer
rendered = Renderer('temp.odt', {}, 'res.odt')
rendered.run()

This creates res.odt, but with the following error in the note field:

Error while evaluating the expression "document(at='logo.png')" defined in the "from" part of a statement.
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
File "c:\python27\lib\site-packages\appy\pod\renderer.py", line 293, in importDocument
res = imp.run()
File "c:\python27\lib\site-packages\appy\pod\doc_importers.py", line 224, in run
width, height = getSize(self.importPath, self.format)
File "c:\python27\lib\site-packages\appy\pod\doc_importers.py", line 190, in getSize
return float(x)/pxToCm, float(y)/pxToCm
<type 'exceptions.TypeError'>: float() argument must be a string or a number

It looks like importPath is getting set incorrectly. I am developing on Windows. I do not see a way to attach files to this ticket, but I can send the .odt and .py I am working with if that helps. Thanks!

Hello,
Indeed, this bug was detected by another Windows user, I dont't find the related bug or question, but try this:
At the beginning of method "getSize" in doc_importers.py, write

f = file(filePath, 'rb')

instead of

f = file(filePath, 'r')

Does it work ?

This bugfix is still unpublished, only committed in the trunk. Appy 0.7.0 will arive soon with this shipped.
Sorry for the inconveniences !
Gaetan

It is closer, but I am still having difficulty, and I have a feeling that it is still related to Windows. Now, when I renderer.run(), my output .odt file is created and the placeholder is there for the image, but the image is not actually showing. If I right-click where the image should be and go into "picture", it tells me the file name is "file:///C:/Documents and Settings/Wes/Desktop/result.odt/C:\Documents and Settings\Wes\Desktop\result.odt.1316829798.535000\unzip\Pictures\logo.jpg". As you can see, I am working off of my desktop, but this file path is not a valid file path... at least I don't think it is. Do you have any further suggestions? Thanks!
