ExtendScript - this keyword
on Dec 11, 2016 at 5:43:30 pm

Working on a After Effects script for my own project. On my process of learning to do scripting for ae, I came across a keyword "this" in many scripts and I couldn't find the meaning for it and how to use it. I couldn't find any resource related to that on the internet too. A brief explanation will be helpful.

Thanks in advance!

"this" is Javascript, and it refers to the object of which the function in which "this" is used is a method -- kind of like the function/method's parent.
