Does anyone know a way to programatically loop through the items in the document library

Mar 9, 2010 2:12 PM

A lot of the funcations like deleteSymbol and updateSymbol depend on which items are "selected" in the library panel.

 

Is there a way to programatically access these selections?

or

Loop through the library?

or

Set selections?

    I have looked into this, and I can't find anything on it.

    What the Fireworks developers could do to help extension developers is to provide access to several arrays in the Fireworks document, such as the collection of Library items, layers, and pages.

     

    One for the developers, I think.

    Yup, I've asked for an API to access the selection in those panels for years, to no avail.

     

    Note that you can loop through layers, frames and pages, but you can't tell what the user has selected in the actual panel UI.  Also, you can't find out which symbols are currently used in the document.  Nor can you programmatically insert a rich symbol into the document and have it maintain its "richness".
