Variable into data collector


Is there a way to get a variable I have filled in a sub (for instance a corrected number of objects) into the data collector table?

I tried a few things but without success so far (e.g. parsing a System.Double from a function into the expression of Region:Area(count)

    Hi Daniel,

    Nikita's example is a good start, but if you need more details I've attached an app that demonstrated how to control Data Collector. Check the app's code to see how it works.




  • Hi Daniel,

    I think, this example will help you. What I did:
    1) Added user defined measurement "MyTest" (double) into the "Image" table without expression,
    2) Collect the data into the Data Collector (now, you have a row in the Image table, "MyTest" value is empty)
    3) Run macro Set_Value_in_DataCollector (this macro will set value in the last row)

        Public Function Set_Value_in_DataCollector() As SimpleScript
            Set_Value_in_DataCollector = New SimpleScript
            Dim ds
            With Measure.Data.CollectorCommands.GetData(Set_Value_in_DataCollector)
                .Run(ds)'get DataCollector data set
            End With
            With Automate.ScriptingCommands.CodeCommand(Set_Value_in_DataCollector)
                If .Run() Then
                    ' User Code Here
                    Dim ds2 As System.Data.DataSet = ds
                    Dim dt As System.Data.DataTable = ds2.Tables("Image")'get table
                    Dim dr As System.Data.DataRow = dt.Rows.Item(dt.Rows.Count-1)'get last row
                    dr.Item("MyTest")=123.456'set value
                End If
            End With
        End Function



  • Thanks to both of you!
  • Hi Nikita, 

    I tried your solution for Measurement Stats data table and a table column "Corrected Count", however it tells me that it does not belong to the data table (although there). So could you specify "1) Added user defined measurement "MyTest" (double) into the "Image" table without expression" a bit more concrete?

    Hi Yuri, 

    Could not find an attached app.  Is there a link?



  • Hi Daniel,

    I'm attaching it again (it looks like when the answer is marked as Accepted, the attachment disappears).

  • Data collector app.
  • Yes - sorry and thx. I'll remember. 
  • Hi Daniel,

    You can add the user defined measurements into the regular tables:

    The stats table generated automatically and I'm not sure you have any access to it.
