Chapter 2. Event Handling and Script-Defined Browse Schemes

2. Event Handling and Script-Defined Browse Schemes

A script can extend and modify the behavior of Adobe Bridge at a number of levels:

  • At the highest level, the basic behavior of a thumbnail icon is determined by its browse scheme. There are several predefined browse schemes that provide the most common kinds of behavior, such as displaying the contents of a folder, or displaying a web page (see “Thumbnails as node references” on page 9). You can select one of the predefined browse schemes to create a thumbnail that has the basic default behavior you require (see “Thumbnail object constructor” on page 133).

  • You can intercept user-interaction events to extend or override the default behavior. These events include actions on thumbnails (such as selecting them), and also actions on the application (quitting) and on the browser window (such as activating it in the windowing system). See “Event Handling in Bridge” on page 17.

  • You can modify the displayed thumbnails in the Favorites pane by defining thumbnails with “Script-Defined Browse Schemes” on page 23.
