Need help populating a textView
npr3ha last edited by
Hello, I’m very new at this, but I’ve read the Ui docs provided with the app and done some googling, and I still can’t find a solution to a problem I’m having. I’m trying to populate a textView with the first element of a list, then change the contents of the textView after a button is pressed. However, I cannot get the textView to show the first element of the list. The error I’m getting points to the last line of my code (line 36), and says: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘text’. In my UI file, ‘examElement’ is the Name of the textView. I think I’ve followed the format of how I’ve seen others use textViews, but maybe not. Hopefully it’s an easy fix! Thanks
import ui strokeExamElements = ["You can't teach an old dog new tricks","Age? Month?","Close eyes tightly, open eyes wide","Facial droop","Visual Fields (4 quadrants)","Horizontal gaze tracking","Arm Drift","Leg Drift","Sensory: Arm","Sensory: Leg","Coordination: Arm (finger-nose)","Coordination: Leg (heel-shin)"] i = 0 listOfPositives =  def nextExamElement(): global i i += 1 view['examElement'].text = strokeExamElements[i] def animation(): sender.alpha = 0.0 # fade out # must define the button_tapped action prior to loading the view def button_tapped(sender): buttonTitle = sender.title if buttonTitle == 'Negative': nextExamElement() elif buttonTitle == 'Positive': listOfPositives.append(strokeExamElements[i]) print(listOfPositives) nextExamElement() elif buttonTitle == 'Show Results': # TODO: add new view to display the list of positive elements ui.animate(animation, duration=0.75) pass view = ui.View() ui.load_view('MendExam').present('sheet') view['examElement'].text = strokeExamElements[i]

In your main bit, you want
You were creating a view, but then loading and presenting a completely different view.
