      Hi,

        I am working on Adobe Indesign JavaScript. I don't know what is the code i have to use to place the oveflow text,If my textframe overflows.

        if(mytextFrame.overflows)

        {

             // code

        }

      Awaiting for ur reply.

          This sample creates a place for the overflow text to go. The first two lines are for testing -- select a non-overflowing frame and run the script (nothing happens), then select an overflowing frame and run the script (... something happens).

           

          mytextFrame = app.selection[0];
          if (mytextFrame.constructor.name == "TextFrame")
            if (mytextFrame.overflows)
              mytextFrame.nextTextFrame = app.layoutWindows[0].activePage.textFrames.add({geometricBounds:["12mm","10mm","200mm","120mm"]});
          

           

          Perhaps we can skip a few more mails by telling what it is you need --  a complete, working, fully debugged and tested Javascript, written by an expert, or a hand in writing one yourself, step by painful step? To do what -- read XML and parse/place the text, fully automated?
