Calculator script?

Post by calli »

Hi,

often I need some quick calculations while blending.

Is there already a python script providing a calculator?

Too bad I have no time to implement one.

Regards,
Carsten

You could just do it interactly (sort of).

Code: Select all

form math import *
at the top of the script and then just type in the equations like this

Code: Select all

print cos(0.5) + 0.2 + log(10)
(not sure if log exists, but you get the idea).

Then run the script and look in the console.

Primitive, but it works.

@theeth: Sure but thats much more complicated than starting a calculator (xcalc or Windows whatever) and switching programms ;-)

It would be really nice if you could enter such calculations straight in to number buttons and then have them evaluated when you press enter. I tried to look in to the code to do this myself but I couldn't work it out :?

Like in Macromedia freehand! that is a really practical and useful means of updating info in num buttons!

Stick the script in a text window and it'll run in the console. Or you can run it as a standalone.

datastring=Create('0+0')

def gui():

  glClearColor(0.5,0.5,0.5, 0.0)
  glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT)
  Button("Exit", 1, 310, 10, 80, 19)
  glRasterPos2i(10, 100)
  Text("Calculator")
  datastring= String("Enter : ", 2, 10, 70, 380, 19, datastring.val, 70)
  glRasterPos2i(20, 50)
  Text("Result : "+str(eval(datastring.val)))

def event(evt, val):
  if (evt== QKEY and not val): Exit()
  Blender.Redraw()

def bevent(evt):
  if   (evt ==  1): Exit()
  Blender.Redraw()
