I would like write RGB values of each polygon in attribute table and then convert to excel/CSV/txt file.

I found this script that writes RGB values for each polygon into attribute table. I created new script as it shows on this page. However when I run the tool, I get a message:

Executing: rgbValues D:\temp\GIS\eGeologija\KRANJ\SIMBOLOGIJA krpoly_opis_polygon #

Here I do not know how to reapir script so I would appreciate your help!

It looks like either you're not entering a value for the FieldName parameter or it's not wired up correctly when you made the script tool. You can see when it prints the new R, G, and B fields it doesn't have to original FieldName with it (which it should).

EDIT:

I just noticed you're entering TEMPS SET as the FieldName. Field names cannot have spaces so double check that the field name is correct and that you're not using a field alias instead.

It seems strange if I choose LYR file as Symbology layer, I have no option to choose Symbology field.

I prepared map package that includes data and script. Blake, can you check what is wrong?

By importing your shapefile to a file geodatabase and classifying the symbology category using unique values (one field) instead of unique values, many fields, I was able to get this script to run. The shapefile wasn't working because it doesn't specify if a field is nullable, which is something the script checks for. And the many fields symbology wasn't working because the script only has input for one symbology field.

I specified the following script tool parameters.

Here's the script output:

Thank you for your work  We will try to figure out how to obtain RGB values from unique values, many fields, if it possible.

This script requires to define one field that symbology is driving off. If we figure out to how obtain RGB values from many fields, which parameter should be choosen for Symbology field instead of String

I don't know the intricacies of this script so I can't offer much advice on how to proceed. However, I suspect that it won't be as easy as changing the script tool parameters. You're likely going to have to rewrite some Python code in the script.
