    XML: print parents of an element from root

    Lucky Siva

      Hi Everybody,


      Is there any way in Indesign Javascript to literally print the parents or ancestors (xpath) of an element from the root element of an xml file. The below screenshot is the output from Perl script. And the code of Perl script is:


      "my @elt = $twig->get_xpath('//index/index-list');


      for(my $i=0; $i<scalar(@elt); $i++){

              print $elt[$i]->xpath, "\n";





      Can we get the same kind of output using Indesign Javascript?
