Value example

UpdateParameter populates a value list for the second parameter based on the attribute names of NetCDF file.

def updateParameters(self):
    """Modify the values and properties of parameters before internal
    validation is performed.  This method is called whenever a parameter
    has been changed."""

    # If the parameter has been altered, but not validated
    if self.params[0].altered and not self.params[0].hasBeenValidated:
        # Create a NetCDFFIleProperties object based on the input and
        #   use it to populate the value list of the sceond parameter.
        net_cdf = arcpy.NetCDFFileProperties(self.params[0].value.value)
        att_names = net_cdf.getAttributeNames()
        self.params[1].filter.list = att_names
        self.params[1].value = att_names[0]

    return
