java null pointer exception / no window found

Agnieszka
Hello,

I am new to writing macros for ImageJ/Fiji and I tried to create a macro
that would perform particle analysis. At first I duplicate the oryginal
image, apply a filter and then substract images. I apply a certain treshold
and perform the particle analysis. The macro allows also to choose the
channel on which I would like to perform this analysis. To import images I
use Bio-Formats.

First, I created the macro on my mac (High Sierra 10.13.6, ImageJ version
2.0.0-rc-68/1.52e) and it works without any problems generating the results
that I want. My collegues tried running it on their computers (Windows) and
it results in java.lang.Nullpointer exception (attached file) as well as
"No window with the title "Image 1_Maximum intensity projection.czi - C=1"
found."
They tried updating Fiji but it didn't change the problem. I have seen posts
regarding this Nullpointer exception but I could find problem similar to
mine or the they say this problem was solved with an update.

At this point I don't have a clue where this problem is coming from so I
would appreciate any help.

Thanks,
Agnieszka

My macro:

input = "/Users/agnieszka/Documents/test_images/";
output = "/Users/agnieszka/Documents/Results-test/";
channel = "1"; // channel 0 or 1

function Action(input, output, filename) {
       
                run("Bio-Formats Importer", "open=[" + input + filename + "]" + "
autoscale color_mode=Default rois_import=[ROI manager] split_channels
view=Hyperstack stack_order=XYCZT");
               
                number = "-1"; // used to create duplicated file name e.g. filename-1
                fileWithoutExtension = replace(filename, "\.czi", "");
                fileWithoutExtensionC = fileWithoutExtension + "_C" + channel; // used for
saving of output files
                filenameC = filename +  " - C=" + channel; // used by further commands
                filename_duplicated = filenameC + number;
               
                selectWindow(filenameC);
                run("Duplicate...", " ");
                run("Median...", "radius=5");
                imageCalculator("Subtract create", filenameC, filename_duplicated);
                selectWindow(filenameC);
                close();
                selectWindow(filename_duplicated);
                close();
                setThreshold(30, 255);
                saveAs("Tiff", output + fileWithoutExtensionC + ".tif");
                // adds 0 to the results table in case there are no particles found:
                run("Clear Results");
                setResult("Area", nResults, "0");
                run("Analyze Particles...", "  show=[Bare Outlines] display summarize");
                IJ.deleteRows(0, 0);
                saveAs("Tiff", output + "Drawing of Result of " + fileWithoutExtensionC +
".tif");
                Table.rename("Results", "Results" + fileWithoutExtensionC);
                saveAs("Results", output + "Results_" + fileWithoutExtensionC + ".csv");
                close();
                close();
                run("Close");  
}

setBatchMode(true);
list = getFileList(input);
for (i = 0; i < list.length; i++)
        Action(input, output, list[i]);
selectWindow("Summary");
saveAs("Text", output + "SummaryC" + channel + ".csv");      
setBatchMode(false);

Re: java null pointer exception / no window found

Marcel.
This post was updated on .
If your colleagues executed the exactly same script then it is obvious that
your Mac file paths don't work:

input = "/Users/agnieszka/Documents/test_images/";
output = "/Users/agnieszka/Documents/Results-test/";

The have to adjust the path or you could built a little GUI to select the
path in the beginning

The latest ImageJ daily build (1.52f42) fixes a bug could cause the ImagePlus.getFileInfo() method (used by the saveAs("Tiff”,path) macro function) to throw a null pointer exception. The ‘input’ and ‘output’ directory paths in the macro also need to be updated to work on Windows.
