Am trying to send commands to the Illustrator from C#. I can create a new document, draw some simple paths/objects, copy/paste things. But when I try to do anything with the Group/Page Items like changing their position or size I get "Invalid Argument exception".
There is no C# scripting reference, so I use Visual Basic one. And it worked well for simpliest things.
Please tell me what is wrong with this code:
illustrDoc.GroupItems.Top = 1.0; illustrDoc.GroupItems.PathItems.Top = 1.0; illustrDoc.Layers.PathItems.Top = 1.0; double scale = 10.0; illustrDoc.GroupItems.Resize(scale, scale, true, true, true, true, scale, Illustrator.AiTransformation.aiTransformCenter);
All the lines listed above (except "double scale = 10.0;", of course) generate the same exception. That is wierd.
All the layers/groups/items are unlocked and visible.
I don't know about C#, but visual basic uses parenthesis instead of brackets, and the object arrays are 1 based...so, to access the first group, in visual basic you need to write it like this
illustrDoc.GroupItems(1).Top = 1.0;
Thank you Carlos, that helped. The array starts from 1, not from 0. This is non-standard and strange, but works.
