raising node errors

Recommended Posts


I want to raise errors on a node using python, but the information about the error in the help dialog gets pretty cluttered when just raising

hou.NodeError('The description about the error')


when raising this straight up i get multiple lines about where in the code the error was raised and other stuff

is there something i can do to make the node info cleaner?

Optimally i would like the error dialog to only say

"Error: The description of the error"

as regular sop nodes does when they warn about errors

I think you just have to add "raise" in front of the line to get what you want :) :

raise hou.NodeError(‘your error message’)

raise hou.NodeWarning(‘your warning message’)
