Scripting - Get Entry for Symbols

Hi everyone,

I am really new to Toon Boom and I have been trying to script a bit in it. I am currently trying to get/set the value of the cell from the column which contains a symbol. I attached my script below.

function Test()
{
var selNode = Application.selection.selectedNode(0);
var linkedColumn = node.linkedColumn(selNode, “DRAWING.ELEMENT”);
var entry = new String(column.getEntry(linkedColumn, 1, 1));
if (entry)
{
print(“entry is possible”);
}
column.setEntry(linkedColumn, 1, 1, “#3”);
}

The problem I am facing is that when I use the script to get the entry of the cell, it returns nothing in the command line, but the cell’s value is actually “#1”. Weirdly enough, I can set the value of the cell as “#3”. The above script definitely works on drawings, jus not symbols. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!!

Thanks Lilly!

Hmm I’ve never tried to script with symbols instead of drawings. Let me double-check this one and get back to you.
