The LAY methods that work on the titles are:


Returns the number of titles in the document layout.

For example the instruction:

var titlesCount = LAY.getTitlesCount();

returns the integer value 1 in the titlesCount variable.


Returns the block of the title with the given index, or undefined if the title index is invalid.


The index of the title is not the id of the block. It must be contained in the range [0, n], where n is the number of titles.

For example the instruction:

var titleBlock = LAY.getTitle(1);

returns the following object in the titleBlock variable:

    "id": 5,
    "parent": 1,
    "pageNumber": 1,
    "type": "title",
    "x0": 67,
    "y0": 234,
    "x1": 179,
    "y1": 257,
    "children": [],
    "beginPos": 42,
    "endPos": 52,
    "tokenBegin": 13,
    "tokeenEnd": 14,
    "wordBegin": 13,
    "wordEnd": 14,
    "label": "H1",   
    "titleIndex": 4,
    "level": 1


Field name Description Field type Default value
titleIndex The position of the block in the index of the titles Integer -1
level The level of the title Integer -1

Watch the Blocks fields to know about the common fields of this object.
