Detect whether bookmarks panel is open

I have JavaScript that runs best with the bookmarks panel open. I know app.execMenuItem("ShowHideBookmarks"); toggles the bookmarks panel but I've not been able to find a way to detect whether it's already open.

Is there one?

Thank you

Yes, you can use: this.pane

It will return "B" when the bookmarks panel is open, and something else if it's not. For example, "T" if the pages thumbnails panel is open, or "N" if no panels are open.

Thanks try, worked great. Where would that info be? Somewhere in the dev kit, maybe? I didn't see it in the api reference.

Thanks again

It's an undocumented feature, actually, so use it with care.
