Having an issue where the 'NoneType' object error is either not subscriptable or iterable when using list comprehension or list in general?

Hi,

So I am having an issue where every time I try to create a list, either using a comprehension or other, that returns the error of either 'NoneType' is not subcriptable or iterable. I have tried multiple methods to bypass this error, but it seems that this error persists somewhere and I can't figure out where.

 

 

#Get Field Indexes
OIN = SelectedTempFields.index('ORIG_FID')
VIN = SelectedTempFields.index('ValveID')
DIN = SelectedTempFields.index('LAND_DIST')
LIN = SelectedTempFields.index('LAND_LOT_1')

#Create Dictionary Of Specific Values
CreatedTempList = {}

#Gather Created Temporary Polygon Layer Values
for DLL in DistrictsAndLandLots:
        District = DLL[0]
        Landlot = DLL[1]
        
        DistText = str(District).zfill(2)
        LandText = str(Landlot).zfill(4)
        DistLandText = DistText + LandText

 
        values = [row[VIN][-3:] for row in arcpy.da.SearchCursor(CreatedTemp, SelectedTempFields) if row[DIN] == District and row[LIN] == Landlot and row[VIN][-1] is int()]
        if values:
                print (sorted(set(values)))
                CreatedTempList[DistLandText] = max(values)

for key, values in CreatedTempList.items():
        print (key, ': ', values)

 

 

small snippet of the code

I also seem to be getting two error codes simultaneously, which is a bit odd, and I am not sure exactly how this error is occurring.

 

 

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "U:\Models_Tools\Scripts for Water and Sewer Database\Update Valve ID Field.py", line 101, in <module>
    values = [row[VIN][-3:] for row in arcpy.da.SearchCursor(CreatedTemp, SelectedTempFields) if row[DIN] == District and row[LIN] == Landlot and row[VIN][-1] is int()]
  File "U:\Models_Tools\Scripts for Water and Sewer Database\Update Valve ID Field.py", line 101, in <listcomp>
    values = [row[VIN][-3:] for row in arcpy.da.SearchCursor(CreatedTemp, SelectedTempFields) if row[DIN] == District and row[LIN] == Landlot and row[VIN][-1] is int()]
TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not subscriptable

 

 

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

So I figured out the issue to my conundrum and here is what I came up with:

DistrictsLandLots = [[values[0], values[1], values[2]] for values in arcpy.da.SearchCursor(CreatedTemp, SelectedTempFields) if None not in values]

So there was a value of None that was causing the issue. I couldn't figure out previously on how to isolate it until recently and wrote the script as such in order to overlook that value.

What have you tried?  How are trapping for Null/None values and what are you doing with them?

That should just about do it....

Hi @JoeBorgione,

So here are the things that I have tried:

  • Isolating each variable to determine if the result returns a 'NoneType' value
  • Checking to determine object type (type(values))
  • Checking if the list is a list by using bool(values)
  • Checking if the len(values) is > 0
  • Try and\or Except statements to raise the error (had little to no success with this option)
  • Checking other list for 'NoneType' values

After all of these attempts to find the issue; I still couldn't determine where the issue is.

I was hoping to see the actual code you used.

Your select statement in the search cursor is pretty complex but I  think if you use a series of if/elif statements that check for null values in each of your indices followed with a pass ( or a print statement saying Such and Such index is null) you should be able to avoid the error.  Emphasis in think and should...

 

OIN = SelectedTempFields.index('ORIG_FID')
VIN = SelectedTempFields.index('ValveID')
DIN = SelectedTempFields.index('LAND_DIST')
LIN = SelectedTempFields.index('LAND_LOT_1')

#blah blah blah...
if OIN is None:
    pass
elif VIN is None:
    pass
elif DIN is None:
    pass
elif LIN is None:
   pass
else:
   # do your list comprehension with the search cursor....

 

That should just about do it....

Thanks @JoeBorgione for the advice. I will give this a try and let you know how this goes. I didn't show the entire code since I was concerned with file locations of the data but I didn't think to just post it and delete the file locations. In any case, here is the complete script. It has been changed since I discovered another solution that provided the same information without needing any additional layers.

So this works for you without errors?

 

That should just about do it....

So I ran a few tests and tried a few modifications, but the issue for some reason is still persisting despite your suggestions. I have never encountered an issue like this before so troubleshooting it is dodgy at best.

The error is self-explanatory. You are trying to index None. You can not, because 'NoneType' object is not subscriptable. This means that you tried to do:

None[something]

In general, the error means that you attempted to index an object that doesn't have that functionality. You might have noticed that the method sort() that only modify the list have no return value printed – they return the default None. This is a design principle for all mutable data structures in Python.
