    Read text frame contents?

    newtoindesign Level 1

      Is it possible to get the contents of a text frame as a variable?

       

      Basically, I need to loop through all text frames on a page, and if the user has made a text box with nothing but the text "apple5" for example, then place a file of the same name (if completed and exists) from say //docs/magazine/approved/apple5.pdf into that frame

       

      Have found some guides about placing text into frames, but I need to read the text already in a frame really!

      (if i'm going about this the best way!)
