    How to find hyperlinks with destinations to other files

    InDesignerix

      Hello Scriptmakers

       

      I want to find Hyperlinks in a document with destinations to another InDesin-File.

      I want to find this Hyperlinks by a JavaScript,

       

      I have tried this

       

      if (app.documents.length > 0) {
          main();
      }
      
      function main()
      {
        var doc = app.activeDocument;
        var anchors = doc.hyperlinks;
         
        //for (var n = 0; n < anchors.length; n++)
        //{   
          anchors[0].showSource();  // This works fine.
          anchors[0].showDestination(); // This goes to the right page but in the wrong file.
       
        // The following works, but this is not what I need.
          alert(anchors[0].destination.name);      
          alert(anchors[0].destination.destinationText.parentTextFrames[0].parentPage.name);
          alert(anchors[0].destination.constructor.name);
          
         
        //}
      
      }
      
      

       

      I am missing something like this:

      ...destination.parentFile.name
      

       

      Who can help?

       

      Thanks from
