    [jsx] app.doScript synchronous / callback / event?

    sstrs

      Dear all,

       

      I'm calling a node script from an inDesign script via app.doScript + applescript, works like a charm. Now i'm trying to find a way to let inDesign wait for the node stuff to complete and continue with returned values:

       

      var response = app.doScript("tell application \"Terminal\" do script with command \"node\" script.js [...]");
      // wait for async js to finish...
      alert(response);
      

       

      I'm pretty new to InDesign scripting and was thinking about something like a with-callback-version of doScript or an event, but didn't find anything.

      Is it possible?

       

      Thank you very much!

      cheers
