Scripting Module

Scripting ModuleIf you’re looking to automate EasyCatalog through scripting, a new Scripting module is now available


EasyCatalog has been designed so you don’t need to know how to program to get the most out of it. However, we recognise that there are occasions where workflows demand bespoke solutions that can never be catered for in a generic product. EasyCatalog now has a scripting module that allows you to create customised solutions for your workflow using Javascript, AppleScript or Visual Basic.

Offering a rich dictionary of commands, the EasyCatalog Scripting Module allows you to produce solutions that meet the needs of your organisation – combined with the advanced scriptability of InDesign, using the Scripting Module you can create an elegant solution completely tailored to your exact requirements.

Example Scripts

To illustrate how easy it is to script EasyCatalog, here’s a simple example showing how to ‘Synchronize with Datasource’ and display the number of fields on the document that do not match the original data. A list of all methods is available in the Scripting Module manual here. More sample scripts can be found in the knowledge base.
