    VBScript: Get Text FillColor Color Build


      I'm trying to get the color build of some text in InDesign.
      Sometimes this text will not be a saved document swatch.


      Using this:


      'c is the index of the letter while looping through the text characters


      I can get the swatch name, but using this depends too much on the end user correctly naming every swatch and I can't rely on that.


      Is there a way to go from .FillColor to CMYK or RGB color values?


      I'm trying to avoid turning every color into a swatch but if this is the only possibility can anyone point me to an easy way of doing this (ie someone else's code)?


      Any help is greatly appreciated.


      Edit: To clarify what I mean by "Get", I need the color values as a string, an array would suffice.
