I have a script that uses selected feature attributes and pushes them out to a pdf map. The issue is that when a value is Null, the export PDF doesn't work. I've been trying various methods to ignore Null values but I can't get it to work right. Here is the error ArcMap is throwing:
return setattr(self._arc_object, attr_name, cval(val))
RuntimeError: TextElementObject: Error in setting text
Here's the code pushing out the attributes to the layout pdf. It works right when the value isn't Null.
# Set the layer name from the Table of Contents layer = arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd, "Levee Centerline (Segment Only)") # create a cursor and grab the first row in the feature class for the layer specified above rows = arcpy.SearchCursor(layer) row = rows.next() #Change title text titleElement = arcpy.mapping.ListLayoutElements(mxd, "TEXT_ELEMENT","TitleText") titleElement.text = row.getValue("FC_SYSTEM.System_Name")
