    [JS] [CS3] Attempting to access InDesign's own panels

      Hello everyone

      The JavaScript I intend to write for InDesign takes the currently selected colour in InDesign's swatches panel, then searches for the first instance of it (as an outline/fill of some text or an object, or within a style) in the active document.

      I've searched the forums and Adobe's documentation, and am now pretty sure that to access any item in InDesign's panels I'd need to resort to programming a plugin. But I want to be sure: is JavaScript allowed any access to elements in InDesign's UI, specifically its panels?

      Thanks

      Paul
