I created simple extension project for JupyterLab extension. I’m loading it in Jupyter Notebook 7.
My aim is for extension to insert a cell to the start of the notebook and set its content to a custom text.
I can create the cell and insert it into desired location. However, I’m struggling to find out how to set cell value.
I found example that does it like this:
const current = notebookTracker.currentWidget; const notebook = current.content; NotebookActions.insertBelow(notebook); const activeCell = notebook.activeCell; activeCell.model.value.text = "my content";
In my case, I get typescript error that says that there’s no “value” on model. If I try to type it to “any”, I get error that value is undefined when the code tries to set its text so typings do not lie.
