Question Script Changes in Brushes?

I would like to set up a small script that changes the Brush Angle in 15 degree increments so I don't have to go into the brushes panel and drag the arrow around. Is the information about the photoshop brush accessible and changeable through scripting (Javascript prefered)?

Photoshop 7.1 is what I am using...

Hey, Carl:

Been watching this one to see if anyone smarter about this sort of thing than me replied. Guess I'll jump in with my limited knowledge in this regard.

I know for sure that things like brush strokes using brush-type tools (brush, clone, dodge, burn, etc.) cannot be scripted. It seems to me I read somewhere that manipulating settings of the "current tool" as you suggested cannot be scripted, either. I wouldn't stake my life on this, but after giving it some thought, it's a very practical idea.

Don't know if this would buy you anything: actions and scripts can select previously defined tool presets. Small consolation, however.

Hope this reply gets the attention of someone more knowledgeable in this area. If not, a good resource for scripting-type questions is the Scripting forum at Lots of shape programmer types hang out there. It's a little slow now (summer), but still worth a shot.

Sorry your first post at RetouchPRO didn't draw a crowd. Don't let that discourage you from participating in the future.

If it's not supported by the PS DOM or the change isn't captured in the actions palette then it isn't scriptable. It's a cool feature idea.
