var topFolder = Folder(defaultFolder).selectDlg("Select the top level folder.");
if (!topFolder) exit();
var fileandfolderArray = scanSubFolders(topFolder,/\.(indd)$/i);

var fileList = fileandfolderArray[0];
app.scriptPreferences.userInteractionLevel = UserInteractionLevels.interactWithAll


// ici on boucle sur tous les fichiers. C'est normalement que les fichiers etiquette
for (var i = 0; i < fileList.length; i++) {
	OpenAndUpdate(fileList[i])
}
alert("Done updating and saving files!")
  

function scanSubFolders(tFolder, scanMask){
    var subFolders = new Array();
    var allFiles = new Array();
    subFolders[0] = tFolder;
    for (var j = 0; j < subFolders.length; j++){    
        var procFiles = subFolders[j].getFiles();
        for (var i = 0; i< procFiles.length; i++){
            if (procFiles[i] instanceof File ){
                if(scanMask == undefined) allFiles.push(procFiles[i]);
                if (procFiles[i].fullName.search(scanMask) != -1) allFiles.push(procFiles[i]);
        }else if (procFiles[i] instanceof Folder){

            scanSubFolders(procFiles[i], scanMask);
         }

@laurence roussel12011930,

Give this a try...It's not clear to me on the on the order you wanted, so I took my best guess.

Note: I have not fully tested with your function OpenAndUpdate(doc).

 

// extendScript

var defaultFolder = "/M/infographie/Dossier Phykidis/base de donnée produit/pkd/GAMMES/neutre/403 E"
var topFolder = Folder(defaultFolder).selectDlg("Select the top level folder.");
if (!topFolder) exit();
var fileandfolderArray = scanSubFolders(topFolder,/\.(indd)$/i);

var fileList = fileandfolderArray[0];
app.scriptPreferences.userInteractionLevel = UserInteractionLevels.interactWithAll


// ici on boucle sur tous les fichiers. C'est normalement que les fichiers etiquette
for (var i = 0; i < fileList.length; i++) {
  if (fileList[i] instanceof File && fileList[i].name.match("\\b" + "A.indd" + "\\b")) {
  OpenAndUpdate(fileList[i])
  }
  if (fileList[i] instanceof File && fileList[i].name.match("\\b" + "B.indd" + "\\b") && app.documents[0].name.match("\\b" + "A.indd" + "\\b")) {
  OpenAndUpdate(fileList[i])
  }
  if (fileList[i] instanceof File && fileList[i].name.match("\\b" + "C.indd" + "\\b") && app.documents[0].name.match("\\b" + "B.indd" + "\\b")) {
  OpenAndUpdate(fileList[i])
  } 
}
app.documents.everyItem().save();
app.documents.everyItem().close();
alert("Done updating and saving files!")
  

function scanSubFolders(tFolder, scanMask){
    var subFolders = new Array();
    var allFiles = new Array();
    subFolders[0] = tFolder;
    for (var j = 0; j < subFolders.length; j++){    
        var procFiles = subFolders[j].getFiles();
        for (var i = 0; i< procFiles.length; i++){
            if (procFiles[i] instanceof File ){
                if(scanMask == undefined) allFiles.push(procFiles[i]);
                if (procFiles[i].fullName.search(scanMask) != -1) allFiles.push(procFiles[i]);
        }else if (procFiles[i] instanceof Folder){
            subFolders.push(procFiles[i]);
            scanSubFolders(procFiles[i], scanMask);
         }
      }
   }
   return [allFiles,subFolders];
};

function OpenAndUpdate(doc){
	app.scriptPreferences.userInteractionLevel = UserInteractionLevels.neverInteract;
	app.open(doc);
	internal_link = app.activeDocument.links;

	for(var j = 0; j < internal_link.length; j++){
		// On vérifie que le lien est OK :
		if (internal_link[j].status == LinkStatus.LINK_MISSING){
			var folderPath = (Folder.selectDialog(internal_link[j].filePath))
			var imglist = Folder(folderPath).getFiles(internal_link[j].name);
			if (imglist.length == 1){
				internal_link[j].relink(imglist[0]);
			}
		}

		// Si le lien est ok. On l'ouvre pour vérifier ses propres lien. La recursivité a lieu ici:
		if (internal_link[i].linkType == 'indd') { // Je ne veux ouvrir que les fichier indd
			OpenAndUpdate(internal_link[i].File) // pas sur. peut etre Filepath à la place de File. cf la doc: https://www.indesignjs.de/extendscriptAPI/indesign-latest/#Link.html
		}
	}
	app.activeDocument.links.everyItem().update();
	// app.activeDocument.save();
	// app.activeDocument.close();
   return 0; // fin de la fonction. Elle ne renvoie rien normalement
};

Mike

cool i will test, you are fast

 

idéa is open only "top" file, open each link inside, and open each link inside the new document

 

apfter update all, save and close, and finish for update the top file ,update and save and close
