Get Table Continuation Variable from Table Title

Feb 26, 2013 12:46 PM



I have a table object, and I've determined that the table has a title by finding a valid FirstPgf object.


Now I want to check that FirstPgf object to see if the system variable, Table Continuation, is there.


I suspect this involves getting the paragraphs text items, specifically the constant FO_Var. But I don't know how to do it.


Thanks for the advice.

    #target framemaker
    var doc = app.ActiveDoc;
    // Cursor in the table title paragraph.
    var pgf = doc.TextSelection.beg.obj;
    // Get a list of the variables in the paragraph.
    var textList = pgf.GetText (Constants.FTI_VarBegin);
    for (var i = 0; i < textList.length; i += 1) {
        var variable = textList[i].obj;
        // Display each variable's format name.
        alert (variable.VarFmt.Name);
