    SaveAs button not working with dialogue

    idiota 1234

      I have some code I've written and links to the tools button. However the SaveAs function errors as it suggests that it is not defined. I am running this script as a folder-level script. I have pasted the script i am using below. Can anyone help me with this or suggest me on what to do?

       

      var Subject

      var aDocumentFileName = this.documentFileName;

       

      var dialog1 =

        {

        initialize: function (dialog) {

        var todayDate = dialog.store()["date"];

        todayDate = "Date: " + util.printd("mmmm dd, yyyy", new Date());

        dialog.load({ "date": todayDate });

        },

        commit:function (dialog) {

        var results = dialog.store();

        Subject = results["fnam"];

        aDocumentFileName = results["lnam"];

       

        },

          The code that calls the function needs to be embedded in the file itself. When the application is first opened, and the folder-level script is executed, there are no files open, even if it was opened by double-clicking a file.

            can you provide an example of this, as It is still not working for me when creating the function inside the document.

             

            Thanks

              What code did you put in the folder-level, and what code in the doc-level, and what happens when you open the file?

                app.beginPriv();

                myTrustedSpecialTaskFunc = app.trustedFunction(function(doc,path) {

                // Privileged and/or non-privileged code above

                app.beginPriv();

                mySaveAs(doc,path);

                app.endPriv();

                // Privileged and/or non-privileged code below

                });

                 

                When i open the document, the dialogue box appears and once i press the save. It closes the dialogue box and doesn't save.

                  You got it all wrong, I'm afraid. Put the dialog definition and the if-statement at the doc-level and the trusted functions and the command to add a new toolbar button at the folder-level.

                    Trusted functions at doc-level makes no sense.
