    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?

          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

            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

              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;


              };

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

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

                -X

                  Strange behavior in PS7.0
                  by Jon
                  I need some help. All of a sudden tonight when I started running my actions in PS, a dialogue box will pop up asking me to click ok to continue running the action. It never used to act strangely like this. There must be a toggle to suppress dialogue boxes such as this that I'm missing completely....

                  After hunting all over the site several times for an action someone posted, and after a very good suggestion from Stephen M to gather our "goodies" together for easy access, I'm starting this thread to hopefully round them all up.

                  Stylized comic book action
                  by palms
                  This action is made from a tutorial by Corey Barker
                  seen here

                  It works on quite a few different images it just needs the odd bit of tinkering ( mainly colour etc )

                  All that i have done is made it into a action this is all Corey's workflow

                  I hope...

                  I posted the following several days ago in another HP forum. Maybe this is the place for this question:
