Documents created by any of the iWork applications, Pages, Numbers, or Keynote, can incorporate a common set of elements, including images, shapes, lines, tables, charts, movies, and audio clips. To AppleScript and the built-in scripting support of the iWork applications, these elements are considered iWork Items, and share a common set of properties, detailed in the iWork Item class from the iWork Suite:
The iWork Suite iWork item Class
iWork item n [inh. iWork item ] : An item which supports formatting.
contained by slides, document.
height ( integer ) : The height of the iWork item.
locked ( boolean ) : Whether the object is locked.
parent ( iWork container r/o ) : The iWork container containing this iWork item.
position ( point ) : The horizontal and vertical coordinates of the top left point of the iWork item.
width ( integer ) : The width of the iWork item.
The properties in the iWork item class can be accessed and changed for any of the common iWork elements. For example, a script can get or set the position of a movie, or image, or shape, or any of the common elements.
