Hi All,


I am developing an extension for Photoshop CS6 onwards. I want to get the paragraph style and its properties of my text layer. If I apply a new style and try to get the properties, I always get the Basic Paragraph properties and not the properties of the applied style. I am unable to understand this behaviour. Here is the code I am using,


var curLayer = app.activeDocument.activeLayer;

var activeTextItem = curLayer.textItem;

if(activeTextItem.contents != "")





I always get the font details of the Basic Paragraph style.


Am I missing something?
