Try following,

var _doc = app.activeDocument;
var _rect = _doc.pathItems.rectangle(0,0,100,100);
_rect.fillColor = _doc.swatches['[Registration]'].color;

Hi Charu,

nice to read you again.

Please read OP's other questions to understand my slightly ironic answer (although it actually answers the original question exactly).

😉

 

@Julio Ricardo 

Please note that the names of the swatches in scripts may differ depending on the language.

By the way, here is a way that should work in different locales:

function getRegistrationSwatch(doc) {

    for (var i = 0; i < doc.swatches.length; i++)

        if (
            doc.swatches[i].color.typename == 'SpotColor'
            && doc.swatches[i].color.spot.colorType == ColorModel.REGISTRATION
        )
            return doc.swatches[i];

};

alert(app.activeDocument.swatches[1]);

@pixxxelschubser - No, we can move the swatch up and down in Swatches panel, so index will get changed.

You are right. That was hasty of me. I was of the opinion that [None] and [Registration] cannot be removed AND cannot be moved, but only the first is true.


On the other hand, one could certainly try to avoid unnecessary loops and combine both variants - perhaps like this:

 

var aSwatch = app.activeDocument.swatches[1];
if (aSwatch.color.typename == 'SpotColor' && aSwatch.color.spot.colorType == ColorModel.REGISTRATION) { alert("directly found without loop: " + aSwatch); } // no loop through the swatches needed
else {alert("loop was needed and found: " + getRegistrationSwatch(app.activeDocument));}; // then loop with @m1b's function

// by @m1b
function getRegistrationSwatch(doc) {

    for (var i = 0; i < doc.swatches.length; i++)

        if (
            doc.swatches[i].color.typename == 'SpotColor'
            && doc.swatches[i].color.spot.colorType == ColorModel.REGISTRATION
        )
            return doc.swatches[i];

};

Hi @Charu Rajput 

 

How apply Registration Color in line the code below:

 

// Create a horizontal line
var horizontalLine = doc.pathItems.add();
horizontalLine.setEntirePath([[centerPoint[0]-6, centerPoint[1]],[centerPoint[0]+6, centerPoint[1]]]);
horizontalLine.stroked = true;
horizontalLine.strokeColor = new CMYKColor();
horizontalLine.strokeColor.cyan = 0;
horizontalLine.strokeColor.magenta = 0;
horizontalLine.strokeColor.yellow = 0;
horizontalLine.strokeColor.black = 100;
horizontalLine.strokeWidth = 0.4;
