hi all;

strange !!!!
i got answer to the problem posted by me only.
now I have very good control of CANoe tool from python....
if anybody faces any problem wrt automation of CANoe tool using
python; do contact me.
here actual problem lied in analysing and implementing com heirarchy.
( which is really bit cumbersome)
onChange event is associated with App_Event.Environment.GetVariable
("dummy") object.
So we need to associate separate class with this object and then write
onChange function:

class evtClass:
    def __init__(self):
        print "initializing event class"
    def OnChange(self,value):
            print "value of environment variable changing"

            print "changed value of environment variable is"
            print value

see = App_Event.Environment.GetVariable("dummy")

this will solve problem.
So we need to create separate classes for events associated with
separate objects.
