How to reach documentation about Photoshop constants (or properties)?

Hello,

 

As I was lurking into Photoshop's JavaScript Reference I have come to a conclusion that while ScriptListener plugin will do the job for clearing the fog around the constants(or properties) there is no way I can reveal what these constants(or properties) such as numberOfLayers, hasBackgroundLayer etc. mean. My assumption, by their description, is somehow clear but what if I do want to include them in a future project, how would I know the exact usage of these constants(or properties)?

Is there any documentation I can get with detailed explanation on this matter?

 

Thanks,

Damian

Thank you, but these constants aren't explained in any of the guides and references from Adobe you pointed.

On this forum and even on ps-scripts.com there is no any clear information shared for Photoshop DOM to say, only segments that are solutions to certain problems. Is it solution to have special membership to adobe to know their secrets or is it something that I don't see?
