Javascript and Actions

This has been asked before.
Just got off the phone with Adobe Tech support, which told me "We aren't trained in Scripting, you'll need to post on the forums".
So here I am, posting on the forums hoping to get an official response from Adobe.
Why can't we call actions from Javascript? Or if we can like yout manuals say:
"A script can execute an action, but actions cannot execute scripts."
- ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR CS5 SCRIPTING GUIDE
- ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR CS4 SCRIPTING GUIDE
- ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR CS3 SCRIPTING GUIDE
- ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR CS2 SCRIPTING GUIDE
It's been there from the beginning with no reference to "Only works with Applescript and VBScript" or "Does not work with Javascript".
Adobe, if the functionality exists, why can't it exist in Javascript?
Why can't we have access to menu functions, or panel functions (like the Pathfinder toolset). Why can't I tell Illustrator to call the "Merge" pathfinder tool on object[1] and object[4]?
Has anyone discovered a way to get in touch with an official Adobe Illustrator Script-dev to get his/her take on the issue? Or has anyone found an official response from Adobe regarding it? Or has anyone found the magic function that allows calls to actions?
Thanks in advance,
TJ

I don't recall ever seeing someone from Adobe's Illustrator Scripting team posting in this forum… You do get this in the Ps & Id scripting forums… I think at best they may send you some 'tipex' so that you can remove that from your guides… There is a whole list of things that should have been added to this app's scripting capabilities but have not. In my trial of CS5 where was nothing that I was hoping to see added…

  • Please Please help with JavaScript and Actions

    Hello!
    Is there a way to perform a saved Action from the Action Pallette using a JavaScript script? I know there is a way to do it with Visual Basic.
    Is there a way to run a Visual Basic script from a JavaScript script?(which could be a potential workaround if JavaScript CANNOT call on an Action)
    Is there a way to call on a JavaScript from an Action?
    Here's specific information on my problem:
    I am using Illustrator CS2 on a PC
    I have written all of the JavaScript scripts that I need to perform various layer selection procedures and they all work perfectly. I have placed them in the Presets > Scripts folder so that they appear in my file menu.
    I wrote a very long action that called on these scripts (using Insert Menu Item > then selecting the script by going File > Scripts) sequentially and did some selecting and copy-pasting and applying graphic styles in between scripts. The Action worked PERFECTLY and ran all the scripts I needed to an automated a process that usually takes me an hour in less than five minutes!
    I saved the actions and saved the file.
    After closing Illustrator all of the lines of the action that called on scripts disappeared! It seems this is a known bug...I currently know of no workaround.
    Can anyone help with any of the following things:
    1. Getting actions to SAVE the commands to run javascripts
    2. Writing a JavaScript that runs an Illustrator Action
    3. Writing a JavaScript that runs a Visual Basic script that runs an Illustrator Action.
    I spent three days learning the basics of JavaScript (mostly by trial and error) and successfully wrote all the scripts I needed...I was overjoyed! But now that I've closed illustrator my actions to run said scripts do not work. PLEASE ADVISE!!!
    Thanks in advance,
    Matthew

    try next
    1)if possible split JS-code into 2 parts (before/after action)
    2)make vbs script with contents
    Set appRef = CreateObject("Illustrator.Application.3")
    appRef.DoJavaScriptFile("C:\my1.js")
    appRef.DoScript(Action As String, From As String)
    'add wait while ActionIsRunning
    appRef.DoJavaScriptFile("C:\my2.js")
    3) run vbs (File > Scripts or double-click).

  • About how javascript and actionscript exchange data

    I am a new one to Flex,

    i dont know which type of data usually worked between

    hopecan get some suggestion.
    is the xml object can be used here?
    hope can get detail suggestion.
    some example would be great!
    thanks!
    bellow is my project status:
    I have use write a simple program to success exchange data
    between flex(actionscript) and html(javascript),
    now i need design some structure to transfer data between
    action script and javascript.
    in my project:
    there is some text areas in html page, and other text areas
    in flash,
    we called text areas in html page is groupA text areas
    text areas in flash is groupB text areas.
    each textarea in GroupA has a corrosponding textarea in
    GroupB.
    1.
    when a textarea's text changed(this textarea is in

    the corrosponding textarea's text must change
    inmidietely(textarea in GrroupB/GroupA)
    2.when falsh add a new textarea, html page must add a

    HI!
    Not sure where are you stuck with this, if you already have
    been able to comunicate with javascript and flash it measn you
    already have used the external interface and you should know you
    can send any kind of data to flash, this includes XML or even
    serialized objects.
    I haven't test how big the data you can send to or from
    javascript can be, but what i've done sofar works pretty good with
    any value.
    If you are not using the externalInterface but the old
    fscommand() then you should read the external interface
    documentation:

  • How to use javascript and scriptlet simultaneously

    Hi all!!
    I have a jsp page on which there are two selection lists. One is for publisher names list and second is for journal names list corresponding to publisher selected in first selection list.
    When publisher name is selected in first selection list then all journal names should be listed in second selection list. it requires fetching rows in database.
    ie; action is onChange of first selection list ie; javascript and database is of scriptlet part.
    how to do that??
    I know that scriptlet can't be used in javascript. and it is possible by submitting this form. but i don't want to submit this form.
    Please help me out.
    Thanks

    Hi _abhi,
    Use the onchage action in the drop down tag which will redirect using URL encode to the same page and get the parameter data and pass the value to the second Drop down
    Cheers

    What do you mean? The action plugins are available for download from

    The ability to access or manage plugins will depend on your product

  • Access Custom Attributes in JavaScript and in Transactions

    Hello,
    I try to work with custom attributes. I've problems accessing the values in JavaScript and in transactions, but it works fine within .irpt pages.
    What's the trick?
    For a custom attribute called PLANT, can I write something like this in JavaScript?
    var p = ;
    Is there a way to access custom attributes in the Link Editor of an Action Block?
    Kind Regards,
    Matthias

    Hi Matthias,
    it is not possible to integrate that kind of MII variables in JavaScript like you discribed before.
    You are right that this kind of expression is possible in the .irpt file. The reason why it is working in the .irpt
    but not in the .js is, that the MII script parser is only replacing in HTML content. Everywhere you have
    scripting the parser will not replace the {...} markings (since the curly brackets also show start/end of functions aso.).
    Variables to JavaScript
    The easiest Way to get those variables is to create hidden fields in the .irpt file that you can access via JavaScript.
    For example:
    <input type="hidden" id="hidden_plant" value="{PLANT}" />
    This will be parsed to (e.g.)
    <input type="hidden" id="hidden_plant" value="Karlsruhe/DE" />
    Now you can access this value in JavaScript via:
    document.getElementById( "hidden_plant" ).value;
    Variables to Transactions
    To parse custom variables to a transaction you first have to specify corresponding transaction variables in the
    transaction itself. After saving the transaction you can map those variables to Parameters in the Xacute-Query-Editor.
    Including this transaction to your webpage you can simply assign the required value to the corresponding parameter.
    For example if you mapped the Plant variable of the transaction to Param.1 you can specify the information in the .irpt
    like:
    <applet id="trx_test" ....>
      <... />
      <param name="Param.1" value="{PLANT}" />
    </applet>
    Another possibility is to set the value dynamically via JavaScript if you use:
    document.getElementById( "trx_test" ).getQueryObject().setParam( 1, "Karlsruhe/DE" );
    Native access to user variables via the BLE is not possible (as far as I know).
    I hope this is what you wanted to hear?
    Best Regards
    Sebastian

  • JavaScript and PS CS6: Performance issue

    Hi folks
    I have to admit we are stuck in our development: We have written a Phothoshop Plugin unsing extensive JavaScript and Flash Panels / Action Script.
    The Javascripts would, eg. select a given layer. When running the Javascript in PS CS5 or 5.1 everything is smooth and snappy but we've noticed, that the same JavaScript running in PS CS6 takes up to 300% more time.
    Does anyone having observed the same performance issues?
    Would it be faster to address the specific layers by their native Layer ID's rather than their names?
    Why is there such a performance slow down with the same JavaScripts / ActionScript-FlashPanel between CS5 and CS6?
    We have already contacted [email protected] (we are solution partner silver) but they do not start acting if you are using your own JavaScripts....
    You are our last hope :-( 
    I can send you some of the code but I don't want it to be publicly exposed here.
    Thanks in advance,
    Andrash

    Hi, since nobody bothers to answer we might have to find out ourselfs.
    Maybe it is caused by the way we address layers throug the script?
    Which method are you using?
    Are you addressing the layers directly or are you just cicling throug an array of layers?
    Are you pointing for the layers by their native ID or rather their layer names?
    How do you trigger the script: by another script? From a flash panel (Flex / Action Script)?
    We are using Flash Panels to start the script. The script simply calls a layer by it's name (a numerical ID that we apply to the layer). The script shall look up that specific layer and check if there is some content on the layer. We created a logger to see where the heavy amount of time is consumed and it seems, that it is while jumping to the layer.
    In CS5 that was all a matter of a split second. Now in CS6 it takes a couple of seconds (4sec.). We asked ADOBE Techsupport for help, but they didn't even bother to look at the problem since we are working with self written code (as every developer does.....?!?!). I wonder what techsupport is good for if not answering techical problems like this one.
    I hope that, with your answers we might circle in the cause of the problem!
    Cheers,
    Andreas

  • How to call javascript function & action method on clicking jsf  button?

    I have one jsf custom button. I am checking client side validations in mail by calling javascript function & also sending mail by calling action method of a bean which will execute at server side for onclick event of that button. Because of this when I click on that button its calling both javascript function and action method. So even though validations failed its sending mail. How can I overcome this problem?? Please help me....

    I am asking regarding commanLinks in jsf. I have the following code block in jsf. Even though mailSentMessage('true'); returns false, its calling action="#{emailObjectAction.sendEmail}" method. thats why I got that doubt. try the following code.
    <h:commandLink id="mailBtn123Send"      onclick="return mailSentMessage('true');" value="send mail"     action="#{emailObjectAction.sendEmail}">          
    </h:commandLink>

  • Corrupted Links & Missing Rollovers and Actions

    I don't know what the hell just happened... I've been working on this page all damn day and I must've toggled something by accident because all of a sudden the page has lost all rollovers, links and actions. I mean, they're GONE. And I can't seem to bring them back. Sometimes I'll restart and everything will be there, although it still won't work in the Live Render Window, and the next time there won't be anything but blank palettes where the info should be. I tried opening the html page in a browser and it won't work there either.
    Anybody have any idea what I did? The code seems to be there and all the rest of my pages work fine. I'm at my wits end and have basically lost the last 12 hours of work. I'm hoping I accidentally keyed some obscure toggle and this can be easily rectified. Otherwise... ugh.
    Any and all suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
    I don't know if it helps, but here's the first part of the code on my page:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

    <style type="text/css" media="all"><!--
    body { margin: 0; }

    Can you upload the page somewhere or post the lot?
    I put both in a zipfile attached to this post.
    The first part of the page doesn't show what we need to see. Specifically we will first of all look at the link to the CSScriptLib.js file which should be in your GeneratedItems folder.
    I included that in the zipfile.
    Are you working with the site window open?
    Nope. Just with the Live Preview Window.
    Are the actions Head actions or are they attached to a link somewhere on the page?
    They're attached clicks on images.
    Have you recently changed any GoLive preferences?
    Not that I'm aware of. But who knows, maybe I accidentally typed a key combination that screwed me.
    Thanks you for our help!

  • COMMUNICATION BETWEEN JAVASCRIPT AND JAVA APPLET: US$20 AWARD FOR SOLUTION!

    COMMUNICATION BETWEEN JAVASCRIPT AND JAVA APPLET PROBLEM (Easy Filter Java Applet) -
    US$20 TO ANYONE WHO CAN RESOLVE THE PROBLEM
    To forum visitors:
    I am prepared to pay a standard shareware fee of US$20 to a user who can resolve this technical problem.
    If your advice resolves the problem, I'll forward the payment to your postal address (include your
    address with your reply, and also your email address)
    I am attempting to enable a HTML button (using Javascript's onClick command) to directly input a number into one of the parameter text boxes in the Easy Filter Java applet (ie, enter a new color value number in the text field of the standard Colors Multiplicator Filter interface).
    The applet is Freeware and can be downloaded at: http://www.javazoom.net/applets/easyfilter10/EasyFilter10.html
    (It is a very effective bitmap display and editing utility)
    To achieve this, I am trying to access the part of the applet that defines and sets the textbox. The text box is defined in the .class file by accessing the parameter details in the genericfilter.txt file (accompanies the .class files). I need to access 'private String appletInitialize()' and then one of the 'textFieldParameters' which sets the textbox.
    I understand the basic syntax for referencing the applet:
    document.appletname.setString("An example"). However, accessing the text fields in this applet is more complex!!
    Please can you recommend the correct Javascript syntax to achieve communication with the applet.
    Thank you for your kind assistance.

  • Communication between javascript and Objective-c in iOS.

    We wanted to have a communication between javascript and objective c code. We have already tried the below approach.
    To load fake URLs in JS and append a string which will be used as parameter to the Objective-C code and parse that URL in this delegate method:
    -(BOOL)webView(UIWebView *)webView shouldStartLoadWithRequest(NSURLRequest *)request navigationType(UIWebViewNavigationType)navigationType
    Then send the return value by calling the native method stringByEvaluatingJavaScriptFromString again with parameter callID.
    But we wanted to access Objective class object in Javascript code so that we can call it's methods from javascript code using this object.Android supports this behaviour using addJavaScriptInterface method in webview. Is it possible to have the similar approach in IOS? If not what is the best approach possible to acheive this? If we could achieve similar behaviour then we don't need to change the Jacascript code and will be reused. Please suggest the best possible solution.
