I need a framescript that deletes a specific xref format (e.g., "API") from a book. So I've decided to write one for the sake of practice.
I came up with the following code. When running it on a book, for some unclear reason it complains: "Missing Object on command (Loop) at Line (11). So far, it's unclear to me what the issue is. Any input will be appreciated!
If ActiveBook = 0
MsgBox 'There is no active book.';
Set vCurrentBook = ActiveBook;
Set vDoc = vCurrentBook.BookComponent;
Loop ForEach(vDoc) In(vCurrentBook) LoopVar(vCompobj) //This is the line FM complains about.
Open Document File(vCompobj.Name) NewVar(vDocObj) FileIsOldVersion FontNotFoundInDoc RefFileNotFound(AllowAllRefFilesUnFindable) AlertUserAboutFailure(false);
Set vDocObj = ActiveDoc;
Set vDocObj.ShowAll = 1;
Set vXrefFmt = vDocObj.FirstXRefFmtInDoc;
Loop While (vXrefFmt)
Set vXrefFmtToDelete = vXrefFmt;
Set vXrefFmt = vXrefFmt.NextXRefFmtInDoc;
Save Document DocObject(vDocObj);
Close Document DocObject(vDocObj);
Line 11 should be
Loop ForEach(BookComponent) In(vCurrentBook) LoopVar(vCompobj)
I didn't test the rest of the script.
Thank you, Rick!
I wonder why vDoc = vCurrentBook.BookComponent isn't right in this case. It's basically the same object.
Try putting in
and you will see that BookComponent is not a valid property of a Book object.
Also, if you look up the Loop ForEach command in the FrameScript Reference Manual you will see that there are a limited number of object names that you can use in the ForEach parameter. You have to use one of the object names (like BookComponent) and not a variable like you were trying to do.
I hope this helps.
Sure. It's clear now. Thanks!
