    [APS] get XMP property as string (get "author" of...)

      Hi all,

       

      I have a situation here. I have to extract XMP datas from images. Everything is ok to a major exception. Applescript only give me what I want if I request a XMP property specifically. Ex:

      get description of link xmp or link...
      

      The fact is that request may change based on user preferences. The chosen field is stored as a string in the document (insertLabel) through a JS interface.

      So I can extract that string with APS, no problem.

       

      The fact is I end with something like

      get "description" of link xmp of link...
      

      that APS refuse to consider.

       

      So my question is how can I make APS eat my string ? Is there any sort of eval or whatever that could make APS understand the string as a property request ?

      TIA loic
