script to return the amount of left & right parenthesis & media

The copy of ingredients below seems correct you?  Try the evidence and feel our frustration.

Well, I tend to believe there is an extra right parenthesis, and this is a perfect job for a script. Can we make a script to return:

Left parentheses: XX

Right parenthesis: XX

Left parentheses: XX

Right media: XX

Left braces: XX

Right braces: XX

or propose another method for the County / evidence. I've been the colorization of sections.

INGREDIENTS: Dulce De Leche Caramel [corn syrup, sweetened condensed milk (pasteurized milk, sugar), water, palm oil, cream, glycerine, pectin, salt, Phosphate disodium, (emulsifier), soy lecithin, natural and artificial flavor, CARRAGEENAN and Sorbate de Potassium (conservative)], the Whip topping [water, corn syrup, palm kernel oil, sugar, contains less than 2% of the following: COPRA oil] (, (derived from A milk) Sodium caseinate, dextrose, gum Arabic, gum of carbohydrates, salt, xanthan gum, natural flavour, extracted, morning of beta carotene to rice), wheat flour, palm oil, sugar, eggs, pecan nuts, milk, butter [cream (milk), water]. Chocolate drizzle [corn syrup, water, cocoa (processed with alkali),-modified maize starch, glycerine, (conservative) potassium sorbate, artificial flavour], cocoa (processed with Alkali), baking soda, Benzoate de Sodium (conservative)

Hi Mike,.

It's been many moons (10 months) that I posted here. Anyway, I have been 'hidden' forums every day since and did some searching for something today and came across this thread so I decided to post. I don't know whether or not you have received one response from others (cough: Carlos ;-), in any case, perhaps this will help your efforts, otherwise, it's a basic example):

        var redColor = new RGBColor(); = 255; = 0; = 0;
        var txtString = app.activeDocument.selection[0];

            var txtChar = txtString.characters[i];
            if (txtChar.contents == "(" || txtChar.contents == ")" || txtChar.contents == "[" || txtChar.contents == "]" || txtChar.contents == "{" || txtChar.contents == "}") {
                txtChar.characterAttributes.fillColor = redColor;
                txtChar.size = 20;
                txtChar.characterAttributes.textFont = app.textFonts.getByName("Verdana");

I suppose it could be expanded further, but it is a starting point and could, however, be useful for your efforts. It will be useful.

  • The function of enter the characters of left, right or middle of the member name?

    Does anyone know of a function or set of functions I can use to enter characters in a member name in a similar way to the functions of Excel RIGHT, LEFT, or MID? I would like to be able to write a rule to retrieve only certain characters in a member name.


    If you look briefly into the ref of technology so you can find @SUBSTRING (String StartPosition [, EndPosition])


    Beginning at the character position in a string to be included in the substring. An integer greater than or equal to 0, where 0 is the first character in the string, 1 corresponds to the second character and so forth.

    Final position

    As an option. An integer greater than or equal to 1, where 1 corresponds to the first character in the string, 2 corresponds to the second character and so forth. If the end position is not specified or is less than StartPosition, Essbase returns all other characters in the source string. Note that this is a different numbering scheme that uses the starting position.

    Now, I hope you have a good naming convention.

  • Script that returns the name of the user

    Hello, I have a fairly complex script that exports the text of an InCopy document. Is InCopy CS3 and is running on a Windows 2003 platform. It would be useful as this script to find out who is the user, that is who runs the export. Has anyone written a script that removed the username and group ads, the OS, or in fact InCopy. The solution, I think, perhaps by calling an external script that queries the operating system and returns this kind of data. Any thoughts on this topic would be appreciated. Thks, Wil

    On Windows, you can get the name of the user like this:

    Alert ($.getenv ("username"));


    alert ((Folder.temp + "") .slice (12, -14));


  • In Firefox, 29, is there a way I can return the menu top left orange button?

    In Firefox 29, they removed the top button on the left. I was wondering if there was a way to get back to this button.

    The interface you see in Firefox 29 is a major (a first since Firefox 4) redesign of the user interface of Firefox called "Australis". We could argue about the similarity of the UI between 29 and Chrome but what good's that do? Point main is that Firefox is even more customizable than Google and more securely.

    If you don't like the new look of Australis, you can return to the display before Australis use the addon classic restaurateur theme

  • How to execute a Perl script and returns the value as a string?

    Hi, I am trying to build an application using the eclipse 2.0.0 with the Blackberry SDK 7.1 plug-in. currently I tested Simulator 9900 version I need to use the Perl language to access the raw biological database and returns as a string without having to write a longer program using java.

    In a stand alone Java SDK, I can use the line:

    Process p = Runtime.getRuntime () .exec ("perl")

    but when I tried to use it on the IDE for a Blackberry project, the project will not compile. It is said:

    Method exec (String) is undefined for the type of Runtime

    Hopes, can someone show me the correct syntex to use, but if no class is available, could someone show me a sample for unified research process? The names of blackberry dev is very complicated, I can't find any samples for her.

    Thank you.

    Seems interesting.

    Your idea was to download the data to the BlackBerry and then directly execute queries.

    Although there are a number of other obstacles, the first fall you in East platforms supporting Perl.  Here is the list:

    BlackBerry OS Java is not included - in fact the only ' included phone OS is Symbian.  Interestingly, it seems likely that PlayBook and BB10, because they are based on the QNX operating system.

    If we discard Perl as a query language, then you will need to provide another option to search.  I think that unified search is an option, but you will have some work to do to use it.  The first thing you should do is find out if in fact, you can download the database on the BlackBerry.  The only available on the Blackberry database engine's SQL, so if you want the database can be exported to a SQL database, there is a chance that it would work.  I had a quick glance around the site, and I can't tell what the "database" is in the format.  Then I suggest that look you at that next.

    I hope this helps.

  • the balance - locked left/right

    I recently installed a new desktop running Windows 7 - using two existing Philips speakers, computer which worked fine with the old computer with XP.
    I (finally) found the hidden Windows 7 speaker balance controls but when I try to change the volume of a speaker, the other changes steps, as if I had a Mono system. How to cut the speakers, so the balance working correctly?


    I suggest you to follow the below steps and verification-

    1. Click Start and then click Control Panel.
    2. Open the option of the its and on the reading tab click the display windows of speakers. This allows the button Properties, click it.
    3. This new window as properties of the speakers, click here on the levelstab.
    4. Now, click the Balance button before the bar of the speaker volume.
    5. This will open another small window of balance. Here you can set the balance between the left and right speakers according to the requirement.

    I hope this helps. Let us know the results.

  • Help with the page of left-right movement of objects...

    I'm on a new book from scratch.

    I noticed other books I've worked on same moving pages (text/objects) a little to the right and a little strange objects moving to the left.

    What is the standard?

    Or the text boxes should be centered?

    How much should I spend on 8 x 10 gardening book?

    Thanks for your comments...

    EXAMPLE of where there are areas more broad (the guides are on the block of text):


    I don't know that there is a 'standard' for this, but it's certainly not unusual that uneven on the inside and outside margins.

    The more pages in the book, more inside margin must be to keep your text to get lost because the pags are asked to dishes. I tend to use th elargest within the margin I can get away with and while leaving a sufficient margin on the outside to grab the book and turn the pages without the fingers or the thumb overlapping the text block.

    Book layout is really an art and what size pages, margins, and the bolcks text should be are very dependent on each other and on the size of the type, or perhaps the size of the type depends on other factors. The point is to make a layout that is easy to read. There are some pretty good resources online to get advice on the layout book if you google.

  • How can I change the icon of left/right in the menu drop-down?

    Is it possible to add a custom icon to the left icon that appears on the menu drop-down?

    Thank you.

    Disable the icons to the right for now, and select the left icon (right click and select same icon) and apply a new image by using the populate options. And then select the icon on the right and link ArrowMenuDown.gif to a new image of the active panel.

    Thank you


  • How do I move focus left/right/up/down

    Imagine that you have created a customized with 5 place BitmapFields Manager placed like this:

    ..... [  ]

    [ ]  [X]  [ ]

    ..... [  ]

    where 'X' represents the selected field.

    Now normally, if you move the trackball, the focus would go in linear order in which the fields have been added to the Manager.  So, they can move from the top to the left, middle, right, and then down.

    But, given that if the trackball can move up, down, left, right, I want to be able to concentrate to the up/down/left/right of the fireplace which precede with a trackBall revealing movement?

    In the handler, I know I can get the movement of the trackball with navigationMovement().  But I do not understand what to substitute in the My Manager or fields to achieve the desired result.


    OK, understood the part I didn't understand the framework.  The API documentation tells you that you must "return true" to indicate that the movement has been handled with:

    protected boolean navigationMovement (int dx, int dy, int, int time status) {}
    int d;
    Block b (block) = this.getFieldWithFocus ();
    If (Math.abs (dx) > Math.abs (dy)) {}
    If (dx > 0) {}
    d = Board.RIGHT;
    } else {}
    d = Board.LEFT;
    } else {}
    If (dy > 0) {}
    d = Board.DOWN;
    } else {}
    d = Board.UP;
    newFocus(b,_d).setFocus ();        Focus new set
    Returns true;        True, since we are consuming events and manages the update

    So, basically, it's the only method I should use to control the change in emphasis.  This isn't at all obvious in the API, especially given the lack of mention on the return value.  Interestingly, some reminders require scythes and other true to indicate the "consumption" or the management of the event.

    Anyway, problem solved.

    This is possible if you use the SDK.

  • 12.2.4 WebADI - Integrator custom fails to cleanup script is triggered when the import returns the error lines

    Hi, hoping for help because it is not very useful detailed documentation on this topic here.

    I built a custom WebADI that uses custom procedures to validate and download the date in a custom table.  I then called an importer script that checks the balance of files (and other things) and mark the lines that do not reach a State of error.  I also managed to get these errors to be selected by the definition of error line and message error search section and everything is right with the world.

    Except that when imported and reports to hide the sad faces appear in the worksheet, I expect the cleanup script then learn to delete the records so that when the errors are corrected in the spreadsheet we don't get the lines in double... and is not.  No amount of tweaking, etc. application errors will result in cleaning the fire.

    Can someone tell me what I need to import of PL/SQL program to do when it detects a mistake for execution of the cleaning procedure?

    Thanks in advance


    IT FIXED myself.

    The downloaded must be a function and return an error message of VARCHAR2.  If you return NULL - then the cleaning is not called as expected. If you return to any string, then cleanup is called.
