Creating a citation attribute

I want to create a new citation attribute using SuperTool but I missed something. I tried this but it doesn’t work; supertool does what i ask with no errors but when I next try to access the citation Gramps gives me an error

Citation SuperTool code

from gramps.gen.lib import Attribute, AttributeType

url = ''
attr = Attribute()
attr_type = AttributeType()




Gramps error after previous change is done:

67527153: ERROR: line 157: Unhandled exception

I suppose I’m not using attribute creation properly but I don’t know where.
Could you help me? Thanks.

The only error I see immediately is that you are not using SrcAttribute and SrcAttributeType, which are the correct ones to use in Citations.
