imagePath error? Python

Hey guys

I'm following a tutorial at the moment, i have found that the script he is using does not work in the current python module.

#banner image
imagePath = cmds.internalVar(upd = True) + "icons/example.jpg"
cmds.image(w = 300, h = 100, image = imagePath)

any suggestions what im doing wrong?

Hey Rabbijoe,
be sure and include the traceback error so we can see what's wrong.

If you're trying to get an environment var you can use the os module

import os
pathFromEnv = os.getenv("udp") # or whatever the env var is

also, PyMEL has a Path module that could make your life a little easier with locating files on the network. here is a quick example:

import pymel.core as pm
pathToImg = pm.Path("%s/icons/example.jpg" %pathFromEnv)
#check to see if it exists
Check out my "Intro to PyMEL Training Video" at -- maya python the OOP way!
