    Where can I find the text fillColor for an empty TextFrame? [CS3]

    pjaromin

      I've got a Javascript that needs the fillColor for text in a TextFrame.

       

      You can set the text fill color on an empty frame and InDesign will use that value when you enter text...but before you enter text, where can I get this value?

       

      Currently, for empty TextFrames I'm using pageItem.appliedObjectStyle.appliedParagraphStyle to retrieve the other settings. However, the "fillColor" value always appears to be (0,0,0,100).

       

      Where might I find this value?

       

      Thanks!
