Subject: ACL code to go to a specific
bookmark


I've searched the help and tried to get info by diving into the
packages supplied with Arbortext Editor, but I can't seem to find the ACL I'd
need to go to a specific bookmark in a file.

I've placed a bookmark
named "Bookmark 1" in a file. I can get back to it via the menu, but I need to
write code to do it.

The file has a "?Pub" processing instruction:
" which is where I need to push the
cursor to.

I'm hoping this is easy for a more experienced ACL
programmer. Any clues are appreciated. Thanks. >> To unsubscribe from the

Tagged: ACL code to go to a specific bookmark

The following is at least available in
5.2:


bookmark::goto_bookmark("Bookmark 1")


The bookmark package is defined within
\packages\tools\bookmark.acl


May want to add a "require bookmark;" statement if used
within one of your ACL files.

RE: ACL code to go to a specific bookmark


Steven,

I do what Brent suggested myself now and then, i.e. use undocumented ACL functions
found by code digging. However, be careful: Such functions may suddenly disappear.

Of course, the systematic regression testing we all systematically conduct
before a new Arbortext release is taken in production would pin point that.

An alternative to _using_ such a function can sometimes be to _copy_ it
into your own code. That creates sort of insulating layer against surprises.

Brent:

That's EXACTLY what I needed. Thanks!
