Chapter 1. Scripting Bridge > The Bridge Document Object Model

The Bridge Document Object Model

A document object model (DOM) is an application programming interface (API) that allows you to programmatically access various components of a document (as defined for that application) through a scripting language such as JavaScript.

Each application in the Creative Suite 2 has its own DOM, which consists of a hierarchical representation of the application, and of the documents used in the application. The DOM allows you to programmatically access and manipulate the document and its components. Because the use of a document varies for each application, the DOM terminology varies for each application. For example, each application’s DOM includes a Document class, but the object referred to is different for each application, and the Document class has different properties and methods for each application.
