Error while using Runner.CallMethod()

Hi Team,

 

i am using Python as Project script a Language, and i am trying to use Runner.CallMethod to execute a definition which is in a different routine, but i am getting error as "Python runtime error.Could not convert variant of type (Dispatch) into type (OleStr)"

i have used the import statements as well,

Please find the my below snippet and request you to please help me to resolve it

#Unit1
def testSample():
  Log.Message("Automation")
import Unit1
def Executor():
  strUnitName = "Unit1"
  Runner.CallMethod(eval(str(strUnitName)+".testSample"))

request you to please help me to resolve this Problem.

 

Thanks and Regards,

  • Why do you need Runner.CallMethod?

    Try this :

    Spoiler
    eval("Unit1.testSample()");

        Hi,

         

        I believe that

        Runner.CallMethod(str(strUnitName)+".testSample")

        should work as well.
