Indesign SDK

I was trying to understand how to catch a menu action for a standard Indesign menu item. Looking trough the indesign forum I found out a couple of messages that points to the knowledge base, in particular to "How To: Intercept the File>Open menu event" and "How To: Get the filename from File>New or File>Open menu dialogs".

Adobe Indesign web pages

There are some really useful pages in the adobe web site regarding incopy/indesign development:

Indesign Developer Knowledgebase

Indesign SDK - Front Document

When you want to obtain a pointer to the current front document (the one the user is editing) you could use

InterfacePtr doc(Utils()->GetFrontDocument(), UseDefaultIID());
but when you are inside an action component it may not work, instead you should use
InterfacePtr doc(ac->GetContextDocument(), UseDefaultIID());
where ac is the IActiveContext* passed in the DoAction.
