How can I trigger an external script file located in the "Plug-ins/Panels/pannelName/content/panelName.asets/" folder , from an HTML inside my panel?
What should the link look like?
I found this thread http://forums.adobe.com/thread/663118 but this only works for the scrips folder inside photoshop ( Adobe Photoshop CS5 / Scripts)
<a href="adobe://photoshop.cs5/Scripts/script's name">your link name</a>
thanks in advanced
You can't do that, this is a limitation for security. (We assume only administrator can copy file to your photoshop folder.)
But, if you own the panel, you may add some script to the panel's onInit event to copy your script file to photoshop's script folder.
Or install the script file to photoshop folder manually.
You should :
1 ) configure the mxi file adding:
<file source="NameOf yourScript.jsx" destination="$scripts" file-type="ordinary" />
between the tags <files> here </files>
2) place the script file near the mxi file.
3) package the extension to create the installer.
This way the script file will be automatically placed inside photoshop script folder by the installer
Configurator 3.1 is already available for download at Adobe Labs. With this release, you can run your script file with HTML with the funciton _AdobeInvokeScriptFile(scriptFilePathRelativeToAssetsFolder);
