    TextFrame Object CS3 [vbs]

    ChocoboKnight Level 1

      Good Morning all, I'm trying to access the Textframe object in CS3. I've noticed that there is a "Textframes" object which seems straight forward to access and there is plenty of documentation on the next and in Scripting Guides.

       

      However I cannot find any examples, tutorials or guides in how to access the "Textframe" object.

       

       

      can anyone help please?

          hi

           

          Set myTF = myStory.TextFrames.Item(1)

           

          gives you first TF of Story


          Set myTF = myDoc.TextFrames.Item(1)

           

          gives you first TF in Document

           

          Set myTF = myChar.ParentTextFrames.Item(1)

           

          gives you parent TF of character - works same way for all text objects - Line, Word, Paragraph, Text, TextColumn, InsertionPoint - even if your text is in Cell - doesn't work in ID 2.0.2

           

          Set myStory = myTF.ParentStory

           

          if you want to get parent Story
