# Operator.report outside operators

Is there something similar to calling self.report inside an Operator, but for use without Operators (i.e. from bpy.app.handlers functions)?

• can you give an example of how you would want to use this? - I know its not necessary to answer the question but it can be helpful still. – ideasman42 Jul 15 '13 at 0:38

• I need it to report errors in the header, instead of having them go on the console. – Lord Spectre Jul 15 '13 at 14:35

Needed this as well and added a function to the RNA Window Manager API, that can be accessed via bpy.context.window_manager.report(). Basically it does almost the same thing, with the exception that it uses the Window Manager ReportList.
