Object Naming ConventionsΒΆ

There is one object model for the Illustrator scripting interface, but actual object names vary slightly in the different scripting languages:

  • AppleScript names are lower case, and individual words are separated by a space; for example: graphic style
  • VBScript names are capitalized, and additional words in the name are indicated by uppercase initial letters; for example: GraphicStyle
  • JavaScript names begin with lowercase letters, and additional words in the name are indicated by uppercase initial letters; for example: graphicStyle

This chapter uses generic object and property names, but you can easily apply these conventions to determine the corresponding language-specific names.

Throughout this document, names of properties, methods, and object are in a monospaced font.
