    Making an event listener work (InDesign CC Windows 8).

    JADarnell Level 1

      Hello everyone.

       

      I am tryingn to figure out how to make eventListeners work and something is just not clicking.

       

      I wrote this very simple script that looks like this:

       

      main();

       

      function main()

      {

          app.eventListeners.add("afterSelectionChanged", myEventHandler);

      }

       

      function myEventHandler(myEvent)

      {

          alert("Something was selected", "Selection change");

      }

       

      When I run this script through ExtendScript and then go to the document and select a rectangle, I get the following error message twice:

       

      "The requested action could not be completed because the object no longer exists."

       

      I attempted to run it through the scripts panel to see if that made any difference, but when I attempted to save the file Windows told me that I need to contact the administrator to get permission to write in the Scripts Panel folder.  I'm working on that while I wait for any answer that might come forth.
