    How to load any PageItem into a placeGun or a contentPlacer?

    arthurdapaz Level 1

      Hello, I'm creating a ScriptUI dialog which retrieves text from a webserver.


      When the user clicks the "OK" button, I'd like to get this text loaded into a placeGun, or something like that.


      I mean, the user most choose the page position, by the mouse cursor, to place the retrieved text.


      It should behave the same way or similar to "File/Place" tool.


      Can someone point me a direction?


      There is a similar working proof of concept made by Laubender here. But it's not what I want.



      My main ideia, on my tests were to check if this was possible:


      var txtFrame = app.selection[0];


      but it doesn't work.
