Illustrator Scripting :: Regex - Limit Input To A Positive Number (float Or Int)

May 14, 2013

I wish to limit the user input of and edittext to only allow a positive number, float or int. I do not yet know my Regex good enough to do this. I realize that I must get better at regex but in the meantime how to do this ?
I have used this so far on the edittext:
function checkTextInput()
if (this.text.match(/[^0-9.]/g))
this.text = this.text.replace(/[^0-9.]/g, "");


Which matches
which is not desired.

Illustrator Scripting :: Applying Stroke Miter Limit With Apple Script

Feb 24, 2013

I have a bit of a problem with apple script, I'm creating a Text item and setting the stroke to 0.4pt then i want the stroke miter limit to be set to 2 but it wont work i get :-
Adobe Illustrator got an error: Can’t set properties of text frame 1 of layer 1 of document 1 to {stroke miter limit:2}. (error -10006) but im am able to apply a stroke miter limit of 2 on a path item, is there a way of converting the text frame to a path item then applying the stroke miter limit to it.
on TicketFront_(posX, posY)
     tell application "Adobe Illustrator"
          set ticketItem to make new text frame in theDoc with properties {contents:{"Some Text"}, position:{(35.7 + posX) * 2.834645, (173.5 - posY) * 2.834645}}
          set properties of the text of ticketItem to {text font:text font "Raleway-Thin", size:5.54, justification:center, fill color:{class:spot color info, tint:100.0, spot:spot "PANTONE 4535 U" of document 1}, stroke color:{class:spot color info, tint:100.0, spot:spot "PANTONE 4535 U" of document 1}, horizontal scale:126.46, stroke weight:0.4}

ive also tryed putting convert to paths ticketItem in the script which converts the text to paths but the stroke miter limit still dont work.

Illustrator Scripting :: Read Input Parameters From Script File Name

Aug 24, 2013

How do I read input parameters from a script file name? For example, let’s say I want to run a script that requires 3 variables as input, but rather than prompting for the values I wish to read them from the script file name … e.g., the file name might be “Myscript.js (my_variable1, my_variable2, my_variable2)” … where variables are all real numbers. So I assume the script name when run should look something like …  Myscript.js (10, 10, 100), but how do I then read these and assign these values to a var statement within the script?

Illustrator Scripting :: Read A Number From A Variable And Rotate A Shape

Jul 26, 2012

I'm using the variables panel in Illustrator to pull a data set I've got.
For example there's 2 text variables and 1 number going from 0-359. I'm looking for a script which looks at the variable name and pulls the number, then uses that number to rotate a shape by that many degrees.

Illustrator Scripting :: Allow To Select Image To Replace Any Number Of Selected Files

Apr 18, 2013

I've written a script to allow you to select an image to replace any number of selected files.  Each file starts out as an embeded image with a .note to determine where the basis of alignment for the new file should be (i.e. "top," "bottom," "left," "right").  You'll find the code below:
#target illustrator
if (app.documents.length > 0) {
    var docRef=app.activeDocument;
    var docSelection = docRef.selection;
    // ** Get new file
For some reason, the ".note" added at the end of the script gets erased once the script is complete.  I can even get it to confirm that it applied the note to the image, but once it's complete, it's gone.

Illustrator Scripting :: How To Read Real Number Data From Selected Columns In Excel Spreadsheet

Oct 27, 2013


How to read real number data from selected columns in an Excel spreadsheet into an illustrator javascript array variable, so that then I can use this information to construct an illustrator polygon. 
Further information:

I am new to javascript (and not much of a programmer in the best case, but do have some basic knowledge using ancient languages like FORTRAN 88). I am sure I am just missing an important step here despite all morning browsing with Google for answers (something to do with variable definition I assume?). I have some survey data defining the outline of features in map view listed in a string of point (x,y) values in adjacent columns in excel (these x,y point values calculated from GPS data using a commercial program to converted 3D position to a 2D x,y by geoid projection, and then in excel to re-scale point locations to illustrator’s artboard).  What I am trying to do is select columns of x,y value pairs in an excel spreadsheet, copy these values to the clipboard, and then develop an IA JavaScript to draw a polygon through the specified set of x,y points. It seems easy enough to script illustrator to draw the polygon once I get the values from the clipboard are in a javascript array (lots a good tips here [URL] ....), but pulling in the clipboard data seems to be beyond me. I have tried populating a defined array with various combinations of array declarations and app.paste(); or windows.clipboardData.getData('text/plain'); with no satisfaction. I then had the idea to try to pull in the clipboard to one long continuous string, place that in a text box (see see its structure), andthen read and split up the text in a loop to populate the JavaScript array…but that deposited a complex illustrator table object into my text box, and several attempts to force the clipboard to paste text did not work (again probably having problems understanding variable type declaration).
I would be happy to find any method of scripting the pull of the selected on an excel spreadsheet for use in an Illustrator script…so if I am making this all harder than it needs, be I would be grateful to know that also!

Edge Animate CC :: Add 2 Variables That Are Entered Via Input Text / Number Type?

Oct 15, 2013

So I have created 2 text fields via composition ready
 $("<input type='text' value='' name='input1' id='input1' size='5'>").appendTo("#Stage");
sym.$("#input1").css({"position":"absolute","top":"70px", "left":"52px"});
$("<input type='text' value='' name='input2' id='input2' size='5'>").appendTo("#Stage");
sym.$("#input2").css({"position":"absolute","top":"90px", "left":"52px"});
input1 AND input2.
The user then puts a number in each field.
I have a 3rd field created to hold the answer. I also made a text field with the name "scorefield" to see if that would work, either will do.
Then on a button on the stage, the user clicks on it to add those first two numbers together and have the sum appear in the 3rd field or the text field that has the symbol name "scorefield".
However I can not seem to be able to add the 2 values of the text fields. On the submit button I have: 
var number1 = $("#input1").val();
var number2 = $("#input2").val();
var additionresult = number1 + number2;
answer1.value = additionresult;
The problem is that it is NOT adding number1 and number2 together!
If I substitute + for - or / or * it works using those symbols, but if I try to use the plus sign and add the two, it does not work and instead physically adds the numbers next to eachtoher.
So If I were to put a 5 in field one, and a 2 in field 2, the result comes out to be 52...instead of adding the two values, it places them next to eachother.
I know those ARE numeric values because any other mathamatical sign works. I can multiplay, subtract and divide those two numbers. I can even check to se if its higher or lower of a value using > or <.
But when I use the + sign, it breaks.
Is there some other sign I must use to add two values?

Illustrator :: Apply Two Different Colors To Positive And Negative Columns?

Jan 20, 2011

I have created a column graph with a large amount of data. I would like to apply two different colors to the positive and negative columns. Whenever I click on a column and go to object>graph> the column section is unavailable. I checked to see if the graph had become ungrouped, even though I never selected it. If I select the graph as a whole it does not say ungrouped. When I select a column the ungroup tab is greyed out. Does that mean my columns are ungrouped?

Illustrator Scripting :: How To Automate Importing Variable And Datasets Into Graphs Via Scripting

Dec 18, 2012

I'm try to automate the importing of the Varaible and datasets into my graphs via Scripting, but the ImportVaraibles() function doesn't seem to work.  Here is my Script, mostly copied from the example script provided with Illustrator (CS5).  And, this works manually, using the file names in the script, via Load Variable Library
    Set appRef = CreateObject(strIllistratorVersion)
       'Open the file and import the datasets
        Set docRef = appRef.Open(strTemplate & "")
Here is the problem, after I delete the previous library, then this next line, right from the example, does nothing
The script then exits with 'No Datasets in this document'
docRef.ImportVariables (strXMLFolder & "Lumber_200-500.xml")
'appRef.DoJavaScript "alert('Template:" & strTemplate & strRange & ".ai  |  XML file:" & strXMLFolder & ""  & objFile.Name & "^')"
        If (appRef.Documents.Count > 0) Then
            Set docRef = appRef.Documents(1)

If I remove that delete line, the script runs, but just uses whatever Variables I had last loaded, not the XML file.
It's simply not loading.  What do I need to do to get it to load?

Illustrator :: Why Is There A Limit To PNG Export Image Sizes

Jun 26, 2012

This came to my attention around the CS4 era, but I've recently noticed still remains with CS6 - but just why is there a limit as to what image sizes we can export PNG files at [AKA around the 8000x8000 area at 400dpi for me]?
Surely as long as we have the computing power [and RAM] than we should be able to export beyond the 10000/400dpi pixels range [or does it depend on the computer]?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Input 3D Cartesian Coordinates / Batch Input (x / Y / Z)

Feb 4, 2013

My need is to create up to 50 points from the same origin in a three dimensional Cartesian coordinate system but I’d also like to have a labels for each point that show up in the feature tree.

Are there Inventor 2013 plugin (i.e., add-on, 3rd party, AP) to convert a list 3D Cartesian coordinate  system locations (i.e., points) to Inventor to work points(x, y, z)?

I found that I cannot create 3D points in the assembly.  Is this correct? I did find that an Inventor part may be used to create a 3D sketch that creates points in 3D space.  In the past few days, I  found  two ways to create 3D points within a iPRT; the batch way uses an Excel file but it then does not allow me to name the points in the feature tree.  The second way is to create them one at a time but that take way too much time.
