I have a javascript that runs actions. I don't want it to stop when there is a bank note. It would be fine if it didn't open and then was allowed to move on. There is no one to click the button so I need it to happen within the script. Any ideas?

bank note? Do you have Stop step in your action? Exclude Stop step from action and fix the problem.

When you hit the secued image/s what exactly happens? What alert, …? 

If I recall correctly it should be possible to mimick a hitting of the enter-button at intervals within a Script, but I never employed that technique. So you may have to search the Fora for a solution on this.

I haven’t found a thread on intervaled-keyboard-hitting-simulation yet so maybe you should start a new thread focusing on the Scripting subject itself. 

Maybe one of the more-Scripting-savvy regulars might chime in and be able to help out.

Do the images of currency contain metadata or filename content that could be used by a conditional if/else check?

I am not sure but I think Photoshop (and other applications) actually analyze the image content on opening in order to catch the tell-tale signs of banknotes – and that has annoyed a lot of people over time.

No I don't think that there is any metadata that would clue me into wether it was going to alert a message.

The thing is I don't want to do anything with this image. I just want the ability to move on without a user pressing a button. I don't want the file to open.

We understand bagonterman which is why I am asking about ways to filter out these images...

 

If Photoshop has to open the image to read metadata to exclude the file, then that will not work, presuming that there is some sort of available metadata to identify the currency images independently of other images, such as with an XMP:Subject keyword for example.

 

Photoshop should be able to exclude files using an input mask, presuming that there is something in the filename to identify the currency images independently of other images.

 

Adobe Bridge could be used to identify images visually and exclude these images from input to the script.

There is no way to filter them out before it gets to photoshop. Photoshop can recognize even part of a bill.

I'm would think that there is, the three suggestions in my previous post would also be applicable to Bridge, if not in Photoshop. Bridge can control what is processed in Photoshop. Scripting this may not be easy though. You may have to first add metadata (keyword, label, rating etc) or have something in the filename etc, or just manually select all of the files first in Bridge, even if visually excluding the currency images. Bridge can pass selected files to Photoshop from Batch, Image Processor and in Photoshop Image Processor Pro can use selected files in Bridge and all three can play an action.

Does the script just terminate or does it through an error. If its an error opening the files with the bank note you may be able to use try catch and just bypass that file.  Skip processing those files.  You posted Action manager code that does the open it seems to open an interactive popup dialog.  Try using DOM open code rather the action manager code.  Put it in a try catch.

 

open(File("~/Desktop/50_Dollar_Bill.jpg"));

It does not error. It opens an alert window that has to be manually closed. Is there anyway to get around this? The reason I was trying to use the executeAction was because it has a built in DialogModes.NO feature. The message stops the flow of execution blocking everything.

Would there be a way for this to time out after a minute?
