Hi All,

I'm using the below script to replace the text frame content, but this is not working for me

var EnglishContent_array = ["A", "B", "C", "D", "E", "F", "G", "H"];
var JSON_English_content_Array = ["AA", "BB", "CC", "DD", "EE", "FF", "GG", "HH"];
var  Page_Number_Array = [1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1];

processTFrames();

function processTFrames() {
  var doc = app.activeDocument;
  var myTextFrames = doc.textFrames;

  for (var i = myTextFrames.length-1; i>=0; i--) {
    var textFrame = myTextFrames[i];

    for (var p = textFrame.paragraphs.length-1; p >= 0; p--) {
        var paragraph = textFrame.paragraphs[p];
        var pageNumber = textFrame.parentPage.name;

    for (var t = EnglishContent_array.length-1; t >= 0; t--) {
        var englishContent = EnglishContent_array[t];

        if (paragraph.contents.toLowerCase() === englishContent.toLowerCase() && pageNumber === String(Page_Number_Array[t])) {
            paragraph.contents = JSON_English_content_Array[t];
            break;
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

 

Can someone help me?

I got the output by using the below condition

var EnglishContent_array = ["A", "B", "C", "D", "E", "F", "G", "H"];
var JSON_English_content_Array = ["AA", "BB", "CC", "DD", "EE", "FF", "GG", "HH"];
var  Page_Number_Array = [1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1];

processTFrames();

function processTFrames() {
    var doc = app.activeDocument;
    var myTextFrames = doc.textFrames;
    var errorFlag = false;
    app.findGrepPreferences = app.changeGrepPreferences = null;
    app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = "^(.+)"
    var results = app.activeDocument.findGrep();
    //alert(result.length);
    
    for(var r=results.length-1; r>=0; r--){
        var parentpageNumber = String(results[r].parentTextFrames[0].parentPage);
        var ParagraphContents = String(results[r].contents);
        for(var e=EnglishContent_array.length-1; e>=0; e--){
            if(String(ParagraphContents).toLowerCase() === String(EnglishContent_array[e]).toLowerCase() && parentpageNumber === parentpageNumber){
                results[r].contents = String(JSON_English_content_Array[e]);
            }
        }
    }
}

Let me know if I'm wrong.

Thanks
AG

if(String(ParagraphContents).toLowerCase() === String(EnglishContent_array[e]).toLowerCase() && parentpageNumber === String(Page_Number_Array[e])){

What is the state of the issue now? You could look at find/replace as well to accomplish what your are trying to do.
