Re: Clearing Action List

Go under windows, and make sure actions are checked. Under the actions, click on the arrow to the right and it will bring up a list of things-one of which is clear all actions. Click on it. It will bring up a box asking you if you want to clear all of the actions. Click yes, or ok. Done

Do you mean "How to clear the action list?" - using a Javascript?

Re: Clearing Action List

Hello all,

Sorry, I was not clear enough. Yes, I meant using script. Using VB if possible.
If Javascript code is given, then I will have to understand it so I can convert it to VB.

I have looked at photoshop object. I found Photoshop.ActionList. I tried the folllowing code but it did not work.

Dim actlst As Photoshop.ActionList
Dim Xcount
Xcount = actlst.Count

In the other hand, If I try photoshop.ArtLayers, will work, but I have to open an image first.

Dim Xcount As Integer
Set artLayerRef2 = docRef.ArtLayers
Xcount = artLayerRef2.Count


It is logical that I have to open an image so I get the number of layers. And ActionList, maybe should at least be one loaded action to clear the action list, which I have many actions in the action list. But it did not work!

What other object should be envolved when clearing the action list?

I tried the ScriptListener but it does not record any step when selecting clear
all but it will give code when removing one single action.

Pls help

Thanks

Re: Clearing Action List

In case you didn't pick this up elsewhere, I have this in xtools:
Code:
Stdlib.deleteAllActionSets = function(confirmDelete) {
  if (confirmDelete != false) {
    if (!confirm("Do you really want to empty your Actions Palette?")) {
      return;
    }
  }

  var sets = Stdlib.getActionSets();

  for (var i = sets.length-1; i >= 0; i--) {
    Stdlib.deleteActionSet(sets[i].name);
  }
};
-X

Re: Clearing Action List

Hello xbytor,
Thanks again for your support. I have used your code for deleting all action list. The following code was saved in one sinlge file called stdlib.js
But, it gives an error on ref.putIndex(cTID("ASet"), i) line of getActionSets function. Please help.

deleteAllActionSets();

function deleteAllActionSets(confirmDelete)
{
if (confirmDelete != false) {
if (!confirm("Do you really want to empty your Actions Palette?")) {
return;
}
}

var sets = getActionSets();

for (var i = sets.length-1; i >= 0; i--) {
deleteActionSet(sets[i].name);
}
};



function getActionSets()
{
var i = 1;

var sets = [];


while (true)
{

var ref = new ActionReference();

ref.putIndex(cTID("ASet"), i);

var desc;
var lvl = $.level;

$.level = 0;
try
{

desc = executeActionGet(ref);

}
catch (e)
{
break;
// all done

}
finally
{

$.level = lvl;

}

if (desc.hasKey(cTID("Nm ")))
{
var set = {};

set.index = i;

set.name = desc.getString(cTID("Nm "));

set.toString = function()
{
return this.name;
};


set.count = desc.getInteger(cTID("NmbC"));

set.actions = [];

for (var j = 1;
j <= set.count; j++)
{
var ref = new ActionReference();

ref.putIndex(cTID('Actn'), j);

ref.putIndex(cTID('ASet'), set.index);

var adesc = executeActionGet(ref);

var actName = adesc.getString(cTID('Nm '));

set.actions.push(actName);

}
sets.push(set);

}

i++;

}

return sets;


};

Re: Clearing Action List

You need to add this at the top of the script:

cTID = function(s) { return app.charIDToTypeID(s); };
