Danny, the code is missing one line. The wrapping macro adjusts the size of the textbox automatically. Use it.
If I'm saying that it's mostly because your error seems to be precisely in the bit that's not showing ;)

It looks like you're assigning a position (a Point3 value) to a coordinate (a float value).
Just add .x after pos and you should be fine (unless there's something else).

Thanks Garp the macro is working well , its my code , Im not sure where to place the .x , I got this working as a wire script but I wanted to add a delay expresion and was told I should use a scripted controler so thats why I'm playing around whit this, must say its great fun :) but I keep getting stuck with bits along the way ...

I was talking about the macro for pasting the code here. Obviously it's not working as the text window is too small and I had to copy/paste it to notepad to see what's missing.

The last string (the one you assing to i.X_position.controller.script) should be
" at time (F - " + TDelay + ")controlobject.pos.x "
Also TDelay should be a string. If it's a numeric value, use TDelay as string in both scripts.

thanks for the help Garp , as I said I did add the .x but Im still getting that error, TDelay is a string and its woring on the other bits of code so I know its just this bit .

i.X_position.controller.script = " at time (F - "+ TDelay +") controlobject.pos.x " )
