is("global scale") not working on Fiji Macro running on PC

fmerchant


I am running a macro on Fiji with the is("global scale") built-in function without any error on a MAC.
However, when I run the same macro on the PC, I get an error message as shown in the attached image.

A snippet of the macro is

macro "Test" {

if (!(is("global scale")))
{
        Dialog.create("ERROR");
        Dialog.addMessage("Set Scale in MM (millimeters),\nand\ncheck Set Scale GLOBAL before ANALYSIS");
        Dialog.show();
        exit();
}
} //end macro

The message is

Invalid argument in line 4

if (!(is("global scale" <)>))

What am I doing wrong here? Why does it work just fine on the Mac, but fails on a PC?

Thanks
Fatima

The PC is probably running a version of ImageJ earlier than 1.50i, the version that added the is("global scale”) macro function.

ImageJ Macro List.get("Area") return value as a String

LIM Soon Yew John (IMB)
Dear All,

When I wrote the ImageJ (2.0.0-rc59/1.51j; java 1.8.0_66 [64-bit]) macro below, it return my area result as a string. Is this a bug or normal behaviour?

List.setMeasurements;
a = List.get("Area"); print(a);
a = a / a; print(a); //will return an error message that say statement cannot begin with "/"

Best Regards,
John

Hi John,

the List in the ImageJ Macro language can only hold Strings, not numbers
(maybe this is not perfectly clear from the description). You need
parseFloat(a) to recover the number.

Wayne:

Thanks much!
I did have an outdated version of Fiji on my PC.

Thanks again,

You might also use a=List.getValue("Area"); instead.

Jerome.
