    Framemaker15-how to change logo on the reference page


      Hello forum.

      i am a new user of framemaker since may2017. I have little skill  with VBA and javascript but not professionnal  .

      with my new job i receive every month documentantion from manufacturer and we custumize them.

      So each month we copy the manufacturer file with new template and import them in our books.

      but before importing i have to swap the manufacturer logo of the book by my compagny logo and some more minor modifications.

      as this task is repetitive i think i could do it with extendscript

      i send a zip file on adobe cloud with  a sample framemaker book i made and the script i wrote during the last 2 weeks with tips i found on internet.

      the script open all files in a folder  and that all. i didin't find anything about how to change logo on the reference page

      FOR THE MAIN PROBLEM i need your help to swap the logo. i put in the zip file à new sample logo for the test.

      if you have 5 minutes more but not necessary if your time is precious you can answer to the 3 minor questions about access and modification to the copyrignt and how to change a variable (see inside the script).

      As you can see english is not my native language i hope you will understand my problem.

      best regards from France

          Is the logo inside of a named unanchored frame on the reference page? You can access these frames by name. For example,


          var doc = app.ActiveDoc;
          var refFrame = doc.GetNamedUnanchoredFrame ("Single Line");
          alert (refFrame.ObjectValid ());

            Tank you for your help.


            with the following code :


            var refFrame = doc.GetNamedUnanchoredFrame ("Logo");


            the alert message send 1 seems to be "OK"


            so now how to swap and copy Inside not by reference  the logo (insert for framemaker) by mine.


            (see zip file on adobe cloud).


            best regards

              You need to figure out how to import an image into your document and move it to that frame. To import an image, you use the Import method on a Doc object. To move an image, you set its FrameParent property to the target frame. I don't have time to code this for you, but this should get you started.

                Your refFrame points to the frame on the reference page. The logo in the frame is a graphic object, which you can change to point to another file. Assuming the graphic is the only object in the reference frame, this will make the change for you.


                var oGraphic = refFrame.FirstGraphicInFrame;

                oGraphic.InsetFIle = "[reference to new logo file]" ;


                Note that this does not change the image on the screen immediately. When saving and reopening the file, the change is there. Also note that the frame is not going to be resized and the new logo is supposed to have the same dimensions and DPI. If dimensions are different, you need to adapt the frame size or the graphic file DPI in your code. That is something you need to figure out using the Scripting Guide.

                  You can find hereafter the code that i made with your help .

                  (Sorry  i don't know how to insert code in code frame).
