Example text

However, these functions operate on values retrieved from Bridge objects, which must be passed in from the Bridge ExtendScript engine. The update functions need to be invoked in response the user selecting a thumbnail. This action generates a Thumbnail select event on the Bridge side, so the Bridge script defines a handler for that event, which invokes the remote functions by calling execJS. It gets the required values from Bridge DOM objects, packages the function call (the name and its argument list) as a string, and passes that string as the argument to execJS.

For examples, see "Displaying HTML in a Navigation Bar" on page 38. From the HTML page, you can invoke your defined callback functions using the JavaScript call function. Typically, you do this from a control's event handler, such as the onClick method for a button. For example, suppose one of your callbacks is defined as: { myCB: function(x) { return x > 0 } } This defines a function named myCB. Within the HTML page's JavaScript, invoke the myCB Bridge DOM method as follows: var positive = call("myCB", 29); You must use the JavaScript call method to invoke callback functions.

Callback example: Requesting specific metadata value for a file This example shows how to use an HTML file as a user interface to the Bridge DOM. • The Bridge DOM script creates a Thumbnail Object (page 133) that uses a script-defined browse scheme. Its displayPath is set to the path of the HTML file shown below, and its displayMode set to web. This thumbnail is added to the Favorites pane. html page appears in the Content pane. This HTML file provides interface controls to select a file and a metadata key, and a button to request the metadata from the Bridge DOM.
