Hi nilsh85014932,

I'm not into CEP extension, but I can try to answer the ExtendScript side of things.

Could be that the graphic in the IDMS file is not a placed and linked graphic, but just a bunch of pixels that once were copied from e.g. PhotoShop to an InDesign page before the frame was exported to IDMS.

 

In that case there is no valid itemLink of the graphic.

And therefore no linkResourceURI.

 

As far as DOM documentation for ExtendScript is concerned, at least for version 16.0, I can see that property linkResourceURI is only available for object link.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
