Python scripting in Symyx Notebook by Accelrys provides a simple but powerful mechanism for extending the out-of-the-box capabilities of the Notebook. In this session we will review the scripting features of the ELN: where, why and how scripting can be done. We will walk through examples of writing toolbar button scripts, Experiment Editor event scripts, form scripts and various types of section scripts. And we will provide some tips and tricks for effective script programming, including a demonstration of the new script-profiling logging feature introduced in SN 6.6 Service Pack 1.
Designed as an overview for people wanting to become familiar with the scripting capabilities of the Notebook, this session may also provide tips of interest for the beginning- to intermediate-level Notebook script programmer.
