    get the value of a text variable

    erwine7220

      //  In my active Indesign document, there is a Text variable named myRevisionNR, type: modified text, which can be: "00", or "01" or "02", etc.

       

      //  How can I display the "value" of my tex variable myRevisionNR?

      //

       

      //  Create text variable

      var myDocVariables = app.activeDocument.textVariables;

       

       

      var myDocVariablesNames = myDocVariables.everyItem(0).name;

       

       

      //  The following sentence only displays: "myRevisionNR". But I want to see: "01", or "02"

      alert(myDocVariablesNames[0])

       

      //  Who can help me?
