Scripting Access to Linked Items

Hi I just saw that there was a update for Scripting Access to Linked Items. I wanted to know how to exactly use it. The Wikihelp section only tells you that theres a new object array: itemWorkflowItems, it doesnt really tell you how to use it with an example script.

 

Can someone provide an example script using this feature?

Hi,

 

I was able to get it working over the weekend. The following is a bit of the code that I used;

 

var linked_item = loadItem(item.workflowItems[1].id);
linked_item.ORIENTATION = 'Vertical';

 

Hope this helps.

 

David.

From my testing you can use the new functionality the following way;

 

item.workflowItems.length                 [Number of linked items]

item.workflowItems                            [Returns entire array]

item.workflowItems[i].id                      [Returns the id of the row number i in the array]

item.workflowItems[i].descriptor

 

Hope this helps,

 

David.
