Hi,

I have some issues creating a snippet in my code to export the document as jpg.

// Exports current document to dest as a JPEG file with specified options,
// dest contains the full path including the file name
   var jpg_dest = export_folder  + Artikelnummer.Text + '.jpg';
function exportFileToJPEG(jpg_dest) {
 
    if (doc.length > 0) {
      var jpgexportOptions = new ExportOptionsJPEG();
      jpgexportOptions.antiAliasing = false;
      jpgexportOptions.qualitySetting = 70;
      jpgexportOptions.artBoardClipping = true;
      jpgexportOptions.optimization = true;  
      var jpgtype = ExportType.JPEG;
      var fileSpec = new File(jpg_dest);
  
   doc.exportFile(fileSpec, jpgtype, jpgexportOptions);
      codeStart++;
    } 
}


Here is the part where I try to export the jpg file. Followed the hole script:
Also link to an older post where I explain my goal - https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/titelblock-fill-and-export/m-p/9951543?page=1#M101355

var w = new Window ("dialog", "Titelblock Eingabe");

    w.orientation = "column";

var odesigner = app.activeDocument.textFrames.getByName ("designer");
var ocreationdate = app.activeDocument.textFrames.getByName ("date_of_creation");
var otitle = app.activeDocument.textFrames.getByName ("Titel") ;
var opartnumber = app.activeDocument.textFrames.getByName ("partnumber") ;

    var groupgen = w.add("group",undefined,''); 

        groupgen.alignChildren = "fill"; 

        groupgen.orientation = "row";

               

    var group1 = groupgen.add("panel",undefined, "Erstellung"); 

        group1.orentation = "column"; 

        group1.alignChildren = "fill";     

    var group2 = groupgen.add("panel",undefined, "Nummerierung"); 

        group2.orentation = "column"; 

        group2.alignChildren = "fill";

    var todaydate = new Date();

        var dd = todaydate.getDate();

        var mm = todaydate.getMonth()+1; //January is 0!

        var yyyy = todaydate.getFullYear();

        if(dd<10) {

            dd = '0'+dd

        }

        if(mm<10) {

            mm = '0'+mm

        }

        todaydate= dd + '.' + mm + '.' + yyyy;

    myButtongroup.alignment ="center";

    myButtongroup.add ("button", undefined, "OK");

Like @renél80416020 said, you've put the exportFile() function inside an exportFileToJPEG() function, but you do not call exportFileToJPEG().

Oh man, I tried my best to explain the workflow and forgot the error.

My hole script creates the folder and the pdf correct, but no jpg is created. I also tried this snippet with png and it didn't work.
There is no error message.

As answered:
The script doesn't create the jpg. No Error occurs. Rest of the script works just fine.

Hi all and thank you for the answers.

I have first tried to call the function with  exportFileToJPEG(jpg_dest);
As this didn't work, I removed the function and this didn't work either.

Any ideas?
