Resize Anchored Frames with Script

Hi, I have a number of anchored frames throughout a book that are oddly sized. I would like to create an automatic script that resizes them to the graphic, but I'm having some trouble. After piecing together other posts I am currently working with:

 

var doc = app.ActiveDoc;

var graphic = doc.FirstGraphicInDoc;

while( graphic.ObjectValid( ) )

{

     if( graphic.constructor.name == "AFrame" )

     {

        AFrame.Height = graphic.Height + (2 * 65535);

     }

     graphic = graphic.NextGraphicInDoc;

}

 But when I run the script nothing happens. I've checked the console and there are no errors, so I assume I have something incorrect here. The FM scripting guides I've found don't seem to cover anything graphic related. Any assistance is appreciated!

I haven't tested this, but this should work to resize your anchored frames to the containing graphic.

#target framemaker

main ();

function main () {
    
    var doc;
    
    doc = app.ActiveDoc;
    if (doc.ObjectValid () === 1) {
        processDoc (doc);
    }
}

function processDoc (doc) {

    var aframe, graphic;
    
    // Loop through the graphics in the document,
    // looking for anchored frames.
    aframe = doc.FirstGraphicInDoc;
    while (aframe.ObjectValid () === 1) {
       
...

This line doesn't refer to your anchored frame object:

        AFrame.Height = graphic.Height + (2 * 65535);

        }
