It does not officially support COM. InDesign scripting is weakly typed by design.
Out goal is to produce catalogues (from another application , in C# / .net 4.0) which already contains the data. We want to be able to push that data toward indesign so direct com interop seemed to make the most sense.
Also what would be the proper way to send non textual data in indesign? (images etc) from a C# app as those can't simply be serialized as json and passed as text as part of the JS commands.
Any means of commanding Indesign CS 5 from .net 4 would be great.
If you are looking for inter-app communication, you are best off using VB Script to run the script.
Either method would work.
from the C# application but what about images & such that aren't serializeable to json?
