Get the propt value of input()

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I have another question: is there a way to get the prompt argument of the python input() function?

For example if the python code is 

input("Please, give me a number")

I would like to get this string when dealing with the OnReceiveData or OnReceiveUniData events.

You cant't, at least  not easily.


The input function writes to stdout the message and then reads from stdin the input. The two operations are separate.  You may be able to guess from what was written to sys.stdout last.

But what you can do is overwrite builtins.input with your own function.
