And the great thing about Z-Strings is it will now work for all the languages that Photoshop supports, not just French.

this works great for other languages now, but will it affect my english version? Do I need to keep my original code snippet for English or does it matter at all?

As I said, Z-Strings are used to localize for all Photoshop supported languages. Including both version of English.

DOes anyone know if we can add custom Zsrings. I do know sort of how it works. It simply looks at the UIlocalize and find the locale folder and loads that DAT file with the strings.

I now use a method per script of adding localize. For a trick i put them all in 1 JSX and link that in. But id rather use something like the Zstring. But the documentation also states its something internal from Adobe. Why then show what it is?!?!

This is I my method of use now, use applyToAllLayers to run a script on all selected layers, or sublayers. I wanted a localize history output or use it on other parts like the progress bar or counters and dialog windows. I also tried it by adding them all in a JSON file. I noticed the structure is the same. However when i load and read the JSON file, it adds the complete file as a history message. It doesn't understand the single attributes or parts in file. I tried get parts of them by using msg[3] for example. But that returns the 3rd letter of the string. Basically it loads it all as a string. The structure feels broken compared to below example.

Code: Select all

// Call main function from getselected, we can reuse scripts
var ScriptFilePath = Folder($.fileName).parent.fsName;
$.evalFile(new File(ScriptFilePath + '/AnimD2_applyToAllLayers.jsx'));

locColorRed = {
    en: "Colorize the Video Frame in Red",
    fr: "Coloriser le cadre vid\u00E9o en rouge",
    nl: "Kleurbedkking Video Frame in Rood"
};

colorRed.main = function() {
    applyToAllLayers(colorRed);
};

app.activeDocument.suspendHistory(localize(locColorRed), 'colorRed.main()');

Perfect and completely solved the problem, it now works! thx alot!
This scripts doesn't seem to work always? I tried it in a simple doc with 3 layers. Only worked for 1 layer then nothing happens on 2nd and 3rd run?
