      Hi,

       

        I can get the line number of selected text from document but throwing the error for footnote.  How can i get the line number for text from footnote.

       

      Can anyone guide me...

       

      function getLineNumber(myText)

      {   

          try{

              var myTF = myText.parentTextFrames[0];

              //myTF.select()

              line_number = myTF.characters.itemByRange(myTF.characters[0], myText).lines.length;

              line_number = line_number-1;

              return line_number;

          }catch(e){return null;}

      }

       

      Thanks in advance,

      Sudha K
