Is there a way to expand a text item on Illustrator through ExtendScript?
To give an example, consider this pointText on an Illustrator Artboard:
If I expand it (found in the Object tab->Expand), the text "explodes" into a group, so to speak, of text letters of CompoundPaths
I'd like to know if there is any way I can do this expanding feature through ExtendScript.

Haha! Yes. Much better. Forgot that in the heat of the moment. Doh!
😆😆 it happens.
THANKS A BUNCH!
As a follow up, how do I expand a line inserted via Script (which is really a PathItem)?
I've tried to use createOutline for the same but it pops up as an error.
Any wisdom here?
for pathItems you'll need
but pathItems must be selected first
