    Datamerge Preview in custom palette?

    BreachofMind

      Fellow scripters,

       

      I'm building a bunch of new applications to help improve our productivity of our graphics department and eliminate some tedium.

      One application is a custom datamerge palette that allows users to change just the information they edit often, such as the bottom margin and the space between rows/columns. Instead of manually entering the numbers in edittext fields, my palette has nice +/- buttons.

       

      However, the great thing about InDesign's datamerge panel is the wonderful 'preview' checkbox, which I can't figure out how to code! I figured there may be a method in the DOM that I'm completely not seeing.

       

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks in advance,

      Mike
