IAutoFlowCmdData->Set(UID page, UID frameList, UIDRef &parent....

 

Are you passing the 2nd parameter correct - I hope you are not passing Frame's UID (boxUID) but instead passing the UID of kFrameListBoss.

 

InterfacePtr<IGraphicFrameData> iGraphicFrameData(frameUIDRef, UseDefaultIID());

InterfacePtr<IMultiColumnTextFrame> imcf(iGraphicFrameData->QueryMCTextFrame());

 

UID frameListUID = imcf->GetFrameListUID();

 

pass the above frameListUID.

I don't know why but this peace of code doesn't work, when I try to execute command it goes in error.

Probably one of the 4 parameters that I pass to the "set" is wrong but I don't understand what it could be.

Here the code in case anyone wants to use it

 

 

ErrorCode function(UIDRef group, PMPoint attachPoint)
{
    /// Page
    InterfacePtr<IPageList> pageList(DOCUMENT, UseDefaultIID());
    UID UIDPage = pageList->GetNthPageUID(pageList->GetPageCount()-1);
    
    /// How i get the frameList
    InterfacePtr<IGraphicFrameData> graphicFrameData(GetNthPageItem(group, 0), UseDefaultIID());
    InterfacePtr<IMultiColumnTextFrame> multiColumnTextFrame(graphicFrameData->QueryMCTextFrame());
    UID UIDFrameList = multiColumnTextFrame->GetFrameListUID();
    
    /// Layer
    InterfacePtr<IHierarchy> hierarchy(graphicFrameData, UseDefaultIID());
    InterfacePtr<ISpreadLayer> spreadLayer(DATABASE, hierarchy->GetLayerUID(), UseDefaultIID());
    UIDRef UIDRefLayer(DATABASE, spreadLayer->GetDocLayerUID());
    
    /// Autoflow Command
    InterfacePtr<ICommand> autoFlowCmd(CmdUtils::CreateCommand(kAutoFlowCmdBoss));
    InterfacePtr<IAutoFlowCmdData> autoFlowCmdData(autoFlowCmd, UseDefaultIID());
    autoFlowCmdData->Set(UIDPage, UIDFrameList, UIDRefLayer, attachPoint);
    
    /// Execute the command
    return CmdUtils::ProcessCommand(autoFlowCmd);
}

For the 3rd Paremter - it expects kSpreadLayerBoss and not kDocumentLayerBoss.

 

You should be passing iFrameHierarchy->GetLayerUID() itself.

Hi @Rahul_Rastogi, thanks for the reply.

I've already try this solution but it doesn't work, so maybe this was a problem, but evidentelly not the only one.

However, looking at the data interface of the command, I noticed an interesting thing.

I'm probably passing a wrong FrameList to the interface, in fact, as you will see from the image below, everything concerning the FrameList is either empty or goes wrong.

This requires investigation.

 

I don't have the InDesign Debug build installed otherwise we need to know the following -

 

From Debug build -

1. Capture command kAutoFlowCmdBoss

2. Do auto flow manually in InDesign and capture the command kAutoFlowCmdBoss

3. Check the contents of the interface IAutoFlowCmdData, IAutoFlowOversetText, ICommand->GetItemList.

 

Based on above findings we can then conclude what are the exact correct parameters the command is expecting.

Thanks for reply @Rahul_Rastogi,

I think this method is perfect and can save me a lot of time because, when command are not enogh documented, I usually fill interface and hope that it can works, how i'm doing now, and i ofted lose a lot of time doing this.

If you could tell me how I can capture a command you would be doing me a really big favor because I don't have a clue how to do it, I think I should use InDesign Debug, right?

Hi @Stefano5C37 ,

 

There are multiple things that we need to check -

 

1. With InDesign Debug Build - Validate that "kAutoFlowCmdBoss" is the actual command that gets executed when we manually autoflow the content.

a. It may be possible this is not the real command but instead a child command. If that the case the parent command is the right command for AutoFlow.

b. This can only be validated using InDesign Debug Build without writing any code.

 

2. To Capture command and check the values of interfaces can be done using InDesign Release build itself. (InDesign Debug build is not required). This can be done in 2 ways -

a. Add document observer and with the help of information from Point No. 1, we observe the right interfaces and commands. We will get a callback and we can investigate.

OR

b. Add Command Interceptor - This is should not be used for production as it is too expensive to get call. We will get callback for each and every command that InDesign executes.

 

For Command Interceptor Implementation, you can refer -

Being a newbie, I anticipate that I have never performed such operations so be patient if I write things that are obvious or if I don't understand at the first try.

 

As for point 1, I'll explain what I did.
1) I opened InDesign Debug
2) I enabled Test > TRACE > Command Log
3) I enabled Test > TRACE > Echo to debug Windows
4) I opened <sdk>/devtools/DebugWindows.app
5) I run AutoFlow manually
6) This is the result on DebugWindows

ok, then it seems kAutoFlowCmdBoss is the correct command.

 

You need to now check with my point no. 2.

Hi @Stefano5C37 ,

 

I reproduced the problem and InDesign crashed.

 

1. When doing it manually in InDesign, I didn't find anyway that I can select the frame and autoflow the content. Instead, I always found, we must click on frame outport, placegun gets loaded then perform autoflow.

 

2. If you can't do thing manually in InDesign then it is most likely you can't do it from code.

 

3. If I loaded the placegun by clicking on Frame outport and then perform AutoFlow from the code then it worked successfully.

 

IAutoFlowCmdData->Set(pageUID, kInvalidUID, spreadLayerUIDRef, PMPoint(0,0), kFalse, kTrue).

 

In conclusion, you can't just autoflow text from the frame until and unless, your placegun is loaded.

 

Solutions -

 

1. From your code, detect if frame has overset text. If yes, then load the placegun from the code and execute the AutoFlow command.

 

OR

 

2. From the code, detect if frame has overset text. If yes, then create a new text frame and link the frames. Perform this until the last frame don't have overset text.

Thanks to the patience and help of @Rahul_Rastogi, here's the correct answer.

 

ErrorCode AutoFlow(UIDRef pageItem, PMPoint attachPoint)
{
    ErrorCode result = kFailure;
    
    do{
        
        /// Page
        InterfacePtr<IPageList> pageList(DOCUMENT, UseDefaultIID());
        if(!pageList)
            break;
        UID UIDPage = pageList->GetNthPageUID(pageList->GetPageCount()-1);
        
        /// SpreadLayer
        InterfacePtr<IHierarchy> hierarchy(pageItem, UseDefaultIID());
        if(!hierarchy)
            break;
        UIDRef UIDRefspreadLayer(DATABASE, hierarchy->GetLayerUID());
        
        /// Fill PlaceGun
        if(Utils<Facade::IImportExportFacade>()->LoadPlaceGun(UIDList(pageItem), IPlaceGun::kAddToBack) != kSuccess)
            break;
        
        /// Autoflow Command
        InterfacePtr<ICommand> autoFlowCmd(CmdUtils::CreateCommand(kAutoFlowCmdBoss));
        InterfacePtr<IAutoFlowCmdData> autoFlowCmdData(autoFlowCmd, UseDefaultIID());
        autoFlowCmdData->Set(UIDPage, kInvalidUID, UIDRefspreadLayer, attachPoint, kFalse, kTrue);
        
        /// Execute the command
        result = CmdUtils::ProcessCommand(autoFlowCmd);
        
    }while(false);
    
    return result;
}
