Hello friends. 

 

I have a problem with setting geometricbounds of an image in javascript. I submit x, y, width, height and scale X and scale Y percentage. All my params are applied except the X and the Y. I applied these params this way : 

for(var j=0;j<page_item.allPageItems.length;j++)
                    {
                        var sub_page_item = page_item.allPageItems[i];
                        if(sub_page_item instanceof Image)
                        {       
                            var itm = sub_page_item;
                            var gb = [x, y, width, height];
                            itm.geometricBounds = gb;
                            itm.horizontalScale = zoomX;
                            itm.verticalScale = zoomY;
                            
                        }
                    }

 

Did someone has this kind of problem in the past ? Does someone have a solution ? Thanks for your help.

The parameters for geometricBounds are not: [ x, y, width, height ] They are: y for upper left corner , x for upper left corner , y for lower right corner, x for lower right corner Regards, Uwe Laubender ( ACP )

thanks. I 'm gonna try that. We didn't understand the geometric bounds logical. So, if we set the 4 corners, we don't need to set height and with?

You could set the width and height to variables and use them in the bounds. Some thing like this sets the selection to 3 x 2 ruler units:

 

 

var s = app.documents[0].selection[0];

var y = 1
var x = 1
var h = 2
var w = 3

s.geometricBounds = [y, x, y+h, x+w] 


alert("Width: " + getWidthHeight(s)[0] + "   Height: " + getWidthHeight(s)[1])

/**
* Get a page item’s width and height 
*  the page item 
*  an array [width, height] 
* 
*/
function getWidthHeight(pi){
    var wh = []
    var gb = pi.geometricBounds
    wh[0] = gb[3]-gb[1];
    wh[1] = gb[2]-gb[0]
    return wh
}

You have two points that are described by two pairs of y and x values.

Geometric bounds always form a rectangular area where the edges of the rectangle are always parallel to the rulers in a layout window. That's all.
