[Solved] Button Input Callback Error

Hi, I am enjoying Dash, I have spent hundreds of hours playing with it. I am designing a highly interactive 20 page report. :slight_smile:

This is the first stumbling block:

    dash.dependencies.Output('store_values', 'children'),
     [dash.dependencies.Input('button_versus', 'n_clicks')])
def display_content(clicks):

    return json.dump({"nom":clicks}) 
  1. Store value is a hidden div.
  2. Button is created on call - so it does exist

With output error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

I just want to know whether you guys know what is up here, I have tried everything for the whole day. I feel like I know dash on the back of my hand, but can’t wrap my head around this one.

Not sure, but I get basically the same error when I forget the @ in front of app.callback…
so it might be just that?!


You are a genius mate! - If anyone else has experienced this error, lets give this a thumbs up to add it to the error output. Cheers :wink:
