Chapter 10. ExtendScript Tools and Featu... > Application and Namespace Specifiers

Application and Namespace Specifiers

All forms of interapplication communication use Application specifiers (page 255) to identify Adobe applications.

  • In all ExtendScript scripts, the #target directive can use an specifier to identify the application that should run that script. See “Preprocessor directives” on page 251.

  • In interapplication messages, the specifier is used as the value of the target property of the message object, to identify the target application for the message.

  • Bridge (which is integrated with all ExtendScript-enabled applications) uses an application specifier as the value of the document.owner property, to identify another Creative Suite 2 application that created or opened a Bridge browser window. For details, see the “Document Object” on page 106.

    When a script for one application invokes Cross-DOM or exported functions, it identifies the exporting application using Namespace specifiers (page 256).
