Hi guys, how are you? My friends, is there any chance of a script writing the path of a layer on the "y-axis" and controlling that movement through slider?

Here is a small illustration of how it would work:

You could do that with a script simple transform the layer varying the layer y.  I would not think it necessary. For with the move tool you can nudge a layer location  using the keyboard arrow keys and Shift Arrow Keys. Up, Down, Left and Right...

Logo are usually automated  by sizing and aligning them to some location so the process can be batched.  Adding a logo in an interactive process I would just use the move tool.  Why script it?

Like JJMack mentioned it seems a bit much effort for the result.

But you may have intended it as part of some larger functionality or just be looking for the learning experience so I don’t want to discourage you from pursuing the idea.

What are the units in your example supposed to be – pixels or percent?

Hi c.pfaffenbichler! And I've created an action to automate the layout of dozens of photo book covers. On all these covers I will have to add a graphic logo where I work in which I use script to add and modify its opaque color. My idea is to add a control to move, change the positioning of the logo, in that same script, this would prevent it from conflicting with the title of the Cover, which is in the center of the document.

Great! It worked very well here.c.pfaffenbichler, Congratulations on the ability to programmer, beautiful work. I have come to imagine that this is impossible to come true! I'm going to try to add your script to the script I've been using to get more complete and efficient. If I can not, I'll come back again. Thank you

I am afraid the Script is actually somewhat »dirty« in that functions use variables that are not passed to them properly … but in my tests it worked out so far.

Good luck!

c.pfaffenbichler, Here it works very well! Really the code got me lost, I still have a lot to learn. ... Without wanting to abuse your goodwill, could you give me one more help? I tried harder I could not edit the script by adding these lines of code to make it look like the illustration image below: Thanks

var dlg = new Window ("dialog", "Setup logo" );

      dlg.location = [370,370]

  dlg.orientation = "row";

  

    var pnl = dlg.add('group') 

           pnl.orientation = 'row'; 

           pnl.alignment = ['left','top']; 

    var list = pnl.add('panel',undefined,'Select Color');   

           list.orientation = 'row';

           list.alignment = ['left','top'];

           list.orientation = "row";

           list.add ("statictext", undefined, "Color:");

    var  listdropDown = list.add ("dropdownlist", undefined, ["Black", "White", "Custom         "]);

           listdropDown.selection = 0;

          btnGroup = pnl.add("group");       

          btnGroup.orientation = "column";   

          btnGroup.add ('button', {x:90, y:125, width:90, height:25}, 'Enter', {name:'ok'});

          btnGroup.add ('button', {x:240, y:125, width:90, height:25}, 'Cancel', {name:'cancel'});  

listdropDown.onChange = function(){ 

switch(parseInt(listdropDown.selection)){ 

case 0: // Black

    alert("Black");

break; 

      

case 1: // White

      alert("White");

break; 

   

case 2: // Custom 

alert("Custom");

break;         

    }     

dlg.show ();

I don’t have the time to test now, but I suspect you can use the functions from the Script I posted if you address the slider and edittext via their parent and their indices.

Why not try to modify the script he wrote for you.  Learn some about scripting.  Knowing how to script Photoshop is a skill you will use if you want develop Photoshop tools for yourself. Scripts are more powerful than Photoshop Actions but requires you to develop a scripting skill set. 

This is a script you want for your personal use.  Moving a layer interactively via Photoshop UI is so simple no script is really needed. However It a good practice example to learn some Photoshop scripting. It not a script Photoshop users would download and use. 

IMO these forums are for asking for help to learn to use Adobe Products better and many Adobe user here will help you hone and develop your Photoshop skills. 

I'm sure as second slider can be added go do it.

You could duplicate the existing parts (both the UI-elements and the functions), rename the various elements and amend them accordingly.

The problem is that if you use move vertical text

And then the horizontal one returns to the starting point

I would like that after you move vertically and then horizontally do not return to the starting point

According to you can you do?

You need to use both the horizontal and vertical entry in the function, now one is set to 0.

I struggled a bit to edit the script, but I achieved my great goal and I am very happy with the final result 🙂
I want to thank you once again c.pfaffenbichler for the great help. Thank you brother and congratulations on the beautiful work.

 

Here's how it worked:

Hi c.pfaffenbichler​,

good work

But there is a typo in this line: var theHeight = myDocument.heght;

(But this is ok, because of this line is doubled.)

Furthermore one function is missing: reselectLayers0 (myDocument, theLayers);

But after all a really good work.

Thanks, good observations.

The line

reselectLayers0 (myDocument, theLayers);

should be removed altogether.
