# Save file inside an operator

I have written a simple operator to save the current blender file, but when the operator reaches the save function I get an error. I used the bpy.ops.save_as_mainfile() function for saving a scene, but I don't know if it's the right one to choose.

The console outputs this error:

TypeError: 'BPyOpsSubMod' object is not callable
location: /opt/blender/2.70/scripts/modules/bpy/ops.py:188


Does that mean I cannot call functions from bpy.ops?

My script is the the following:

import bpy
class SaveOperator(bpy.types.Operator):
bl_idname = "object.save_op"
bl_label = "Save scene"

@classmethod
def poll(cls, context):
return context.active_object is not None

def execute(self, context):

# build file name stuff
# ...

bpy.ops.save_as_mainfile('~/' + new_file_name)

return {'FINISHED'}

def register():
bpy.utils.register_class(SaveOperator)

def unregister():
bpy.utils.unregister_class(SaveOperator)

if __name__ == "__main__":
register()

# test call
bpy.ops.object.save_op()


The correct call should be bpy.ops.wm.save_as_mainfile(filepath=your_path)
