Encoding problem when customizing script tool behavior

Question asked by Panagiotis on Aug 26, 2015

Hello everyone,

 

I am writing a Python script tool in a custom toolbox and I want to customize its behavior. At this point I want to enable or disable two parameters of my script.

 

When I use the following code, it runs smoothly.

 

def updateParameters(self):

    """Modify the values and properties of parameters before internal

    validation is performed.  This method is called whenever a parameter

    has been changed."""

    # Enable/disable map's reformation date inputs

    if (self.params[1].value == "Partial Ratification") \

    or (self.params[1].value == "Total Ratification"):

        self.params[7].enabled = 1

        self.params[8].enabled = 1

    else:

        self.params[7].enabled = 0

        self.params[8].enabled = 0

    return

 

However, when I change the latin characters into greek characters in my conditional expression (see below), I get the following message.

Warning: Encoding file "<filename>.py" using "ascii" encoding will result in information loss. Do you want to proceed?

 

def updateParameters(self):

    """Modify the values and properties of parameters before internal

    validation is performed.  This method is called whenever a parameter

    has been changed."""

    # Enable/disable map's reformation date inputs

    if self.params[1].value != "αβγ":

        self.params[7].enabled = 1

        self.params[8].enabled = 1

    else:

        self.params[7].enabled = 0

        self.params[8].enabled = 0

    return

 

Any help would be highly appreciated!

 

Best regards,

Panagiotis
