How to Step through Scripts that are sent to other Adobe Apps?

Mar 3, 2012 4:10 PM

A newbie question. In the ExtendScript Toolkit, I'm examining a script that uses BridgeTalk to send a script to Photoshop. I understand how to step through and examine the variables and functions that execute within the Bridge application. But how can I step through and examine the variables that are sent to the Photoshop application? The script executes without breaking as soon as the BridgeTalk script is sent.

    I not sure that you can… What you may be able to do in some cases… is comment out the sending of the bridgetalk message and write the script constructed string message body to the toolkit console… That you might be able to cut and paste to a new script window and run with #target photoshop your other option would be to add lines $.writeln( variable ); at the relevant places in the message body construction…
