    How to get substring from Indesign grep search

    gopaljay78 Level 1

      Hi,

       

      Can anybody tell how to extract substring from grep search.

       

      For example, here is my JS code:

       

          app.findGrepPreferences = null;
          app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = "\\{\\{(artref|boxref|tableref) (.+)( ?)(.+)?\\}\\}";

          found = app.activeDocument.findGrep ();

       

          for (i = 0; i<found.length; i++)
          {

                here I want to save the string   "$2" in to some variable.

           }

       

      From the above script, I want to  save second pattern match ($2 value) to  another  variable.

       

      Thanks,

      Gopal
