FolderItem object



The FolderItem object corresponds to a folder in your Project panel. It can contain various types of items (footage, compositions, solids) as well as other folders.


Given that the second item in the project is a FolderItem, the following code puts up an alert for each top-level item in the folder, showing that item’s name.
var secondItem = app.project.item(2);
if ( !(secondItem instanceof FolderItem) ) { alert("problem: second item is not a folder");
} else { for (i = 1; i "<= secondItem.numItems; i++) { alert("item number " + i + " within the folder is named " + secondItem.item(i).name); } }
