UiPath Activities Guide

Load Python Script

UiPath.Python.Activities.LoadScript

Enables you to store the handlers of a Python script in a PythonObject variable. You can use the resulting variable to invoke the methods within the code. If there is inline code besides the methods present in the script, the code is also executed at runtime. Can only be used inside the Python Scope activity.

Due to a software limitation, this activity uses, by default, the installation location of the Python activities pack as the run directory for the script. To change this, and to be able to use relative paths inside the script, you can add the following code to the loaded script as a workaround:

import sys 
import os
sys.path.append(os.path.dirname(os.path.realpath(__file__)))
import <your module here>

Properties
