I'm creating some Photoshop actions that are going to work via HTML Panel, some of them uses tool presets and others use tool presets and brushes and right now I don't know how check if X brush exist and if not install the .abr file from some route, don't know if it's possible do it or in some way change the script that I have for the .tpl files to do the same.

 

Right now I use this to detect if there's a X preset tool and if not install it:

 

var presetSet  = 'fileName';
  var presetName = 'tool name';

  function setTools(){
    try {
        selectToolPreset(presetName);
    } catch(e) {
        if (loadToolPresetSet(presetSet)) {
            try {
                selectToolPreset(presetName);
            } catch(e) {
                alert("Was unable to Select the Tools Preset "+presetName);
            }               
        } else {
            alert("Was unable to load Tools Presets Set "+presetSet);
        }       
    };
  };

  function selectToolPreset(PresetName) {
      var desc = new ActionDescriptor();
      var ref = new ActionReference();
      ref.putName( stringIDToTypeID( "toolPreset" ), PresetName );
      desc.putReference( charIDToTypeID( "null" ), ref );
      executeAction( charIDToTypeID( "slct" ), desc, DialogModes.NO );
  }

  function loadToolPresetSet(SetName) {
      returncode = true;
      var thisFile = new File($.fileName);
      var path = thisFile.path+'/';
      var SetFile = new File(path + SetName + ".tpl");

      if (!SetFile.exists) {
          returncode = false;
      } else {
          var desc = new ActionDescriptor();
          var ref = new ActionReference();
          ref.putProperty( charIDToTypeID( "Prpr" ), stringIDToTypeID( "toolPreset"  ));
          ref.putEnumerated( charIDToTypeID( "capp" ), charIDToTypeID( "Ordn" ), charIDToTypeID( "Trgt"  ) );
          desc.putReference( charIDToTypeID( "null" ), ref );
          desc.putPath( charIDToTypeID( "T   " ), new File( SetFile ) );
          desc.putBoolean( charIDToTypeID( "Appe" ), true );
          try {
              executeAction( charIDToTypeID( "setd" ), desc, DialogModes.NO );
          } catch(e) {
              returncode = false;
          }
      }
      return returncode ;
  }

I do not think the  tool preset code you posted will work all the time.  A tool preset may exist but selecting the tool preset may fail because of current state the Photoshop UI.   It is best to set the current tool  to be the tool the preset is for before you try to select the preset. For it depends on the current state of Photoshop UI if any tools preset can be selected or just current tool preset can be selected.

Actually I ended using your modified code:

 

var brush = 'watercolor_b_diffuse';
var brushSet = 'brushes'
try{
    selectBrush(brush);
} catch(e){
    if (loadBrushes()){
        try {
            selectBrush(brush);
        } catch(e) {
            alert("no se encontro "+brush);
        }               
    } else {
        alert("no brochas");
    } 
}
function selectBrush(PresetName) {
    var desc = new ActionDescriptor();
    var ref = new ActionReference();
    ref.putName( stringIDToTypeID( "brush" ), PresetName );
    desc.putReference( charIDToTypeID( "null" ), ref );
    executeAction( charIDToTypeID( "slct" ), desc, DialogModes.NO );
}
function loadBrushes(brushSet) {
      returncode = true;
      var thisFile = new File($.fileName);
      var path = thisFile.path+'/';
      var SetFile = new File(path + brushSet + ".abr");

      if (!SetFile.exists) {
          returncode = false;
      } else {
          var desc = new ActionDescriptor();
          var ref = new ActionReference();
          ref.putProperty( charIDToTypeID( "Prpr" ), stringIDToTypeID( "brush"  ));
          ref.putEnumerated( charIDToTypeID( "capp" ), charIDToTypeID( "Ordn" ), charIDToTypeID( "Trgt"  ) );
          desc.putReference( charIDToTypeID( "null" ), ref );
          desc.putPath( charIDToTypeID( "T   " ), new File( SetFile ) );
          desc.putBoolean( charIDToTypeID( "Appe" ), true );
          try {
              executeAction( charIDToTypeID( "setd" ), desc, DialogModes.NO );
          } catch(e) {
              returncode = false;
          }
      }
      return returncode ;
  }

 

The only thing I don't know it's how load the patterns to be used via code

I ended using the next script, on Mac works flawless but for some reason on windows it's not able to find the pattern the same happens for the preset tools, I use the same script for find if the brush X exist and work without any issue, there's any reason why it's not working on Windows? as I say i'm really new developing for photoshop, and I really don't know how debug there, so I can't find a reason:

 

var pattern = 'watercolor_paper';
function setPattern(){
    try{
        selectPattern(pattern);
    } catch(e){
        if (loadPatterns()){
            try {
                selectPattern(pattern);
            } catch(e) {
                alert("Unable to find "+pattern);
            }               
        } else {
            alert("pattern file not found.");
        } 
    }
}
function selectPattern(ptrn) {
    var desc = new ActionDescriptor();
    var ref = new ActionReference();
    ref.putName( stringIDToTypeID( "pattern" ), ptrn );
    desc.putReference( charIDToTypeID( "null" ), ref );
    executeAction( charIDToTypeID( "slct" ), desc, DialogModes.NO );
}
function loadPatterns() {
      returncode = true;
      var thisFile = new File($.fileName);
      var path = thisFile.path+'/';
      var SetFile = new File(path + "patterns.pat");

      if (!SetFile.exists) {
          returncode = false;
      } else {
          var desc = new ActionDescriptor();
          var ref = new ActionReference();
          ref.putProperty( charIDToTypeID( "Prpr" ), charIDToTypeID('Ptrn'));
          ref.putEnumerated( charIDToTypeID( "capp" ), charIDToTypeID( "Ordn" ), charIDToTypeID( "Trgt"  ) );
          desc.putReference( charIDToTypeID( "null" ), ref );
          desc.putPath( charIDToTypeID( "T   " ), new File( SetFile ) );
          desc.putBoolean( charIDToTypeID( "Appe" ), true );
          try {
              executeAction( charIDToTypeID( "setd" ), desc, DialogModes.NO );
          } catch(e) {
              returncode = false;
          }
      }
      return returncode ;
}
setPattern();

Bonjour

 

I have this script which I do not use and which seems to me to be suitable:

 

//Chris Whitaker
//www.Funkybunnies3d.com
//
//simply cycle through a few important tools,
//you can edit this by checking the list of tools at the bottom
//
//PaulMR did most of this work, I just set it up to cycle through... which was only a few lines, so big thanks to him!

/* .................. */

var ref = new ActionReference();
