How to find grouped text box in Quark 6


Could any one help me on how to find whether a selected text box is in grouped or not in applescript.


Hi Gopal,

I am also currently scripting QuarkXPress and took your problem as a learning experience. After some fiddling, I came up with this solution:

(Please note that I am running Mac OS X 10.5 and QuarkXPress 7.3.1 (Demo))

tell application "QuarkXPress Passport"
	if exists current box then
		set curbox to current box
		if class of curbox is text box then
			set boxisgrouped to false
			tell document 1
				set curpage to current page
				tell curpage
					set allgroupboxes to every group box
					set curboxid to uniqueID of curbox
					repeat with agroupbox in allgroupboxes
						set containedboxes to (uniqueID of generic boxes of agroupbox) as list
						if curboxid is in containedboxes then
							set boxisgrouped to true
							exit repeat
						end if
					end repeat
				end tell
			end tell
			return boxisgrouped
		end if
	end if
	--generic boxes of curbox
end tell
