Is the Object Style Catalog accessible via the Extendscript API?

Need to get the list available styles and apply some to certain objects within the document based on user's selections.

Thanks in advance!

Hi fonrig,

you have to look for "GraphicsFmt"

var oDoc =  app.ActiveDoc;

var oFormat = oDoc.FirstGraphicsFmtInDoc;    

while (oFormat.ObjectValid())

        {

        $.writeln(oFormat.StyleTag;)     //StyleTag BUT NOT "NAME"

        

       

        oFormat = oFormat.NextGraphicsFmtInDoc;

        }

You can find all properties in 2019 FrameMaker Scripting guide on page 516

Of course you need an open/active document that contains object styles

Thanks @klaus, I think the issue is that I'm using FM11... See this link:
