    Find H1 style in Top of Frame only

    BEGINNER_X Level 3

      Hi Everyone,




      I want to find "H1" style in top of frame only. It is two column book.


      If "H1" style comes in both the columns 1 and 2.




      Document using span columns, so the script will find all the  H1 style falls in first line of every column.



      Trying script in  ways:


      var myDoc = app.activeDocument

      app.activeDocument.viewPreferences.horizontalMeasurementUnits = app.activeDocument.viewPreferences.verticalMeasurementUnits = MeasurementUnits.MILLIMETERS;

      var myTextFrame = myDoc.textFrames.everyItem().getElements()


      for(i=0; i<myTextFrame.length; i++)


              if(parseInt(myTextFrame[i].geometricBounds[3] - myTextFrame[i].geometricBounds[1]) == 180)


          for(j=0; j<myTextFrame[i].textColumns.length; j++)


              if(myTextFrame[i].textColumns[j].lines[0].appliedParagraphStyle.name == "H1")


                  alert("H1 in First line of Frame\n"+ "Contents:" + myTextFrame[i].textColumns[j].lines[0].contents + "Page number: " + myTextFrame[i].textColumns[j].lines[0].parentTextFrames[0].parentPage.name)









      Could anyone please give solution.

          A solution could be to compare .endBaseline properties.


          myTextFrame[i].textColumns[0].lines[0].endBaseline ==> this could be a base for textFrame [i]


          so make the next if startement with two conditions:

          - proper paraStyle

          - proper endBaseline of 1st line of x textColumn (equal or "no higher then...")
