Help Getting Started with Bridge Scripting

Feb 14, 2012 11:28 PM

I'm trying to learn enough about scripting to understand/modify some simple Bridge scripts, but can't seem to find the proper documentation. I have downloaded the Bridge SDK, have the documents for Adobe Intro to Scripting, Adobe Bridge CS5 javascript Guide and Javascript Reference Manual, and a general Javascript manual. But I can't find where BridgeTalk commands (such as send, onResult, and remote Photoshop calls) are described, as well as many other commands like push, localize, or the use of $ signs.


Can anyone point me to reference materials I would need to learn these things??


Many Thanks

    Bridge and bridgetalk are two very different subjects… The commands for Bridge will be in the guide for the App… Bridgetalk is like a suite super class and is covered in the Javascript Tools Guide… Its part of the inter app comm section… I think you may have looked for bridgetalk in the Bridge manual… As for push() its a method of Array() And non of the JavaScript base commands are covered in any of the guides… you get those else where… the $ is special to the toolkit and is also covered in the Javascript Tools Guide…

    JavaScript Tools Guide CS5.pdf Should be in a folder along with the ESTK install… You will find most of you subject matter in that. Mine on the mac is located…


    /Applications/Utilities/Adobe Utilities - CS5/SDK/JavaScript Tools Guide CS5.pdf


    If not then get one from

    The JavaScript Tools Guide can also be accessed via the help in ExtendScript Toolkit
