Declaring the constants in a text file and retrieving

Hi,

My text file contains:
{
aaa: "bbb"
}

and my script file contains only one statement

put the value of file "/aa.txt" into universal CONST

when I executed the script, I got the below error:

Script Failed
Sense talk compiler Exception:
in (null):
Syntax error at line 1:unkown - can;t understand "[end of script]" at or near character 1


Note: "/aa.txt" is in Documents folder.

Where went wrong?

Thanks,
Ajay

    You'll need to give the proper path to the file. If the file is in the Documents folder then the path should be "~/Documents/aa.txt".

    The path you gave -- "/aa.txt" -- specifies a file at the root level of the file system. Since that file doesn't exist, its value is empty, and the value function gives the error you indicated.
  • Hi,

    Thank you.
    I checked the existing of the file in the directory using
    "if there is a file"

    The actual problem is with the text file.
    It was actually .rtf file and I changed its extension to .txt

    When I created seperate .txt file, I am able to read it.

    Thanks,
    Ajay
