  • Script Dropdown to change Effect Dropdown

    I’m trying to use a dropdown menu in a script to change the dropdown value of an effect. I’m using the code below, but it doesn’t work and no error message is generated.

    The dropdown menu in the script is dropdown1.selection.

    var myType = myLayers[i].effect("Make Selection")("Type");

    var userSelect = dropdown1.selection.value;

    Maybe the first line needs to be:

    var myType = myLayers[i].effect("Make Selection")("Type").value;
