Can't execute a plugin twice

    I have one posted on my plugins site:
    In the python section. Called "Dialog Using Resources".

    Thank you, Scott. But it is for C++. Isn't there anything available for python?

    Scroll down.
    There's a python plugins section below the C++ plugins section.

    That reminds me. I gotta update that website.
    It's pretty ugly.

    Ok, ok... found it.

    My Execute code had a tab too much. Damn! the whole problem was just a tab.
    Thank you for all the help.

    Been there. Done that. Got the T-Shirt.
    I like Python a lot. But that tabbed spacing stuff is a royal P.I.T.A. And burned me more times than I care to admit.
    After dealing with a few spacing errors like that. You don't mind typing {} braces in other languages anymore.

    It does help to use a proper editor which can enforce PEP8 rules to your code. It won't
    be able to fix really fundamental formatting syntax errors, but most of them. PEP8 are
    the official python code formatting guidelines ( x = foo(y=5) instead of x = foo(y = 5) 
    for example).

    There also many (unofficial) branches specifically fitted into the various editors / IDEs.
    Eclipse does come with some rock solid PEP8 enforcing, personally I am using SublimeText3

    There is also CodeIntel for ST3 which can highlight various (possible) code problems for you,
    including PEP8 violations.

    I do have an excellent editor. I use Sublime Text 2.
    This is one of those errors that can only be attributed to me. Code that could be executed nevertheless was only being executed if a condition was true.

    Not sure which version of Sublime supports it, but version 3 or even version 2 has an option to use
    spaces instead of tabs. You won't have this problem when using tabs only, and sublime will automatically
    convert tabs to spaces with the right options.

    Sublime Text 2 can convert spaces into tabs and vice-versa.
    And I always use tabs, instead of spaces :-)
    However, when I copy/paste code from the SDK pages, sometimes the pasted code comes with spaces. But I always convert spaces to tabs.

    All three links work with ST2/.3 The first link is the original PEP8 Autoformat script, which is kind 
    of the official python autoformat and will obviously work on any text file. Link two and three are 
    specific ST2/3 plugins.

    I like autoformatting and I think it is a good idea to follow PEP8, considering the way python 
    does define its syntax. CodeIntel also adds things like some sort of intellisense, displaying your 
    classes and methods with its docstrings and parameters in the autocomplete dropdown. You can 
    also hook it up with the great fake c4d lib from here :

    About spaces and tabs, I think it is actually a PEP rule to use spaces ( edit : just looked it up, it is 
    not a  rule, it is just a guideline, but still worth following for various reasons imho). With an editor 
    like ST you won't recognize any difference in the workflow, as you can just use tab like you are 
    used to.
