InDesign server CS 5.5 - app.scriptArgs.get doesn't work in jsx script or simpleclient problem

Jan 24, 2012 5:38 AM

Hello

 

I'm working with Adobe InDesing Server CS 5.5 and having problem that *.jsx script is not able to read input parameters passwd from sampleclient.exe or SOAP (same story in both cases)

I run following command:

 

     sampleclient.exe -host localhost:8080 "c:\CreateJPEG.jsx" param1="1"

also

     sampleclient.exe -host localhost:8080 "c:\CreateJPEG.jsx" param1=1

and even

     sampleclient.exe -host localhost:8080 "c:\CreateJPEG.jsx" "param1=1"

 

 

app.scriptArgs.get("param1") is always FALSE (see script body below).

Please help, I couldn't find an answer anywhere. All documents stats that this should work in a way I described, but it doesn't. Script is performed but param1 is not set.

 


Here is the script:

#target  InDesignServer

app.scriptPreferences.version = 7.0;

 

main();

function main()

{

  var eRet;   

 

 

  if (app.scriptArgs.get("param1"))

  {

    var sXMLFilePath = "C:\\CreateJPEG.xml";

    var eRet = app.createJpeg (sXMLFilePath);

  }

}

    Hi,

     

    Try this: pass the parameter to the main function:

     

    var param1 = app.scriptArgs.get("param1");

     

    main(param1);

     

    function main(param)

    {

      if(param)

      {

        ...

      }

    }

    Hi,

    First try: if(app.scriptArgs.isDefined('param1'));

     

    Second, use: app.scriptArgs.getValue('param1') to get the Value of the param

    I am having the same issue. I am pssing thru SOAP call through

         sampleclient.java -host localhost:12345 "c:\myJSXScript.jsx" myXml="myXmlLocation"

     

    JSX:

    function main() {

        try {

            var myInDesignXml;

            app.consoleout("isDefined:=" +app.scriptArgs.isDefined("myXml"));

            if (app.scriptArgs.isDefined("myXml")) {

              myInDesignXml = app.scriptArgs.getValue("myXml")

            }

            app.consoleout("myXml:=" + myXml);

            }

        } catch (e) {

            app.consoleout('General Exception');

        }

        return result;

    }

    main();

     

    Output:

    isDefined:=false

     

    I should get the text that we have assigned to myXml param.

     

    Please Help on this.

     

    Regards,

    JK

    I don't see any inherent problem with the jsx.

    I suggest you debug the code with ExtendScript Toolkit with your InDesign server instance selected in the dropdown of the toolkit.

    This would allow you to find the source of error.
