MuSymbol and session_manager

I’m trying to access the session_manager functions but I’m struggling getting the “self” argument from muSymbol functions like “session_manager.SessionManagerMode”.

For instance I want to call a simple mu function like this “session_manager.SessionManagerMode.activate” I need to provide the “self” argument, I do I get it? I was hoping into something like rv.qtutils.sessionManager() but no…

getting there

this gives me a pointer to the session_manager
S = MuSymbol(“session_manager.theMode”)

this returns the class of the session manager
S = MuSymbol(“rvui.minorModeFromName”)(“session_manager”)

but when I test “session_manager.SessionManagerMode.activate” I get “nil” error with the first command and a crash with the second as argument

this works

rv.runtime.eval (‘{ let m = session_manager.theMode(); m.deactivate(); }’, [“session_manager”])

I’m now trying a more advanced command but I get a weird error:

from here:

let m = session_manager.theMode();
m.reorderSelected(true, ); 

rv.runtime.eval (commands, ["session_manager"])

I get this, and nothing happens (this is supposed to move the layer up in the edit mode of the session manager)

As you can see, the mu errors can be quite cryptic !
I believe that you are missing the last argument for the reorderSelected(true, true) method.
It is not used in the method but it needs to be specified.
I guess the dummy parameter was added so it could conveniently be used in the UI.

I hope this helps,


thanks Bernie, this works

moveInputUpCommand = '''


let m = session_manager.theMode();

m.reorderSelected(true, true);



rv.runtime.eval (moveInputUpCommand, ["session_manager"])```
