Keywords

I'm trying to add keywords in python but it doesn't seem to work. I think I am doing something wrong. Here is my code:

from com.infinitekind.moneydance.model import *
import java.util.ArrayList # Keywords are in an ArrayList
import sys
txnset = moneydance.getCurrentAccountBook().getTransactionSet() # all transactions
permittedDescriptions = ["DEFT - KPR"] # permitted descriptions which are not subject to case change
txnsParents = filter(lambda  x:x.class.name == "ParentTxn" and x.getDescription() <> "" and len(x.getDescription()) > 5 and x.getDescription() not in permittedDescriptions and x.getDescription().upper()==x.getDescription(), txnset )
for txn in txnsParents: 
    keywords = txn.getKeywords()
    print 'old keywords:', txn.getKeywords()
    if not keywords.contains(str("caseChanged")):
        print "not contains" 
        keywords.add (str("caseChanged"))
        txn.setKeywords(keywords)
        txn.getParentTxn().syncItem()
When I run this the console gives messages like:
old keywords: [caseChanged, caseChanged, caseChanged, caseChanged, caseChanged, caseChanged, caseChanged, caseChanged, caseChanged, caseChanged, caseChanged, caseChanged, caseChanged, caseChanged]
but the Find & Replace extension shows only one "caseChanged" tag, not multiple copies. However, when I quit md and then reopen it, no tens have a "caseChanged" tag. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi David,

    My best guess here is that the keywords.contains(str("caseChanged")) is returning false because the python string "caseChanged" is seen as different to the java string. Can you try it with something like `if not keywords.contains(java.lang.String("caseChanged"))` or even `if not keywords.contains("caseChanged")` to see if you get different results?

    Thanks,
    Sean

    It seem to work (haven't finished extensive testing) with java.lang.String. Thanks for your help.
