Call Tools from JavaScript

From the JavaScript Console how would I activate the Line Tool with javascript? Or any of the tools for that matter? My intent is to have a custom toolbar button and when the user clicks it will be prompted for a string value, I then need to set this string value as the subject property of the Line ...

Re: Reorder Tabs SOLVED

I know this thread is several months old now but I came here searching for a quick solution to the same problem. I had an idea after reading the responses, since it is windows explorer that is the problem (feeding the filenames to the pdfxchange in the wrong order) why not write a cmd or python scri...

Re: Copy more information from Area Tool

I'm sorry, I'm an idiot... the toolbar was 'minimized', all is well... This toolbar UI is ever so slightly different than standard so it threw me off.

Here is my js in it's entirety: app.addToolButton({ cName: "CalcLnLengths", cExec: "calcLineLengths();", cTooltext: "Calc Segment Length!", cEnable: true, nPos: 0 }); function calcLineLengths() { console.show(); console.clear(); var sa = this.selectedAnnots; if (sa.length != 0) { var a = sa[0]; if (...

app.addToolButton({ cName: "Calc Segments Length!", cExec: "doF()", cTooltext: "Calc Segments Length!", cEnable: true, nPos: 0 });[/code] I don't know what's changed but this code doesn't seem to be working anymore.

Re: Copy more information from Area Tool

That's great again! Thank you. Regarding the scaling. I'm using the area tool to take off dimensions from construction blue prints. When I use the Area, Distance, or Perimeter tool I already set scale in the tool bar. It would be nice if I could access this user defined scale from the javascript, is...

Re: Copy more information from Area Tool

Thank you, that works great! Now I can start hacking. Now I have two questions: 1) What is the variable/how do I access the scale of the selectedAnnot? 2) When I trace out a polygon/area I double-click my last corner to finish the area. I've discovered from this script that that method has a side ef...

Copy more information from Area Tool

How difficult will it be to write a plugin, or javascript, that will report the lengths of each side of a polygon drawn with the 'Area Tool'?

What would be perfect for me is if I could right click on the "Area Info" box and have an option to copy this data to clipboard.
