Hi!

Unfortunately, I don't think that's possible.

 

You can get the Project Details further up in the Project Info dialog with ACAPI_ProjectSetting_GetProjectNotes in AC27.

(for <=AC26 similarly with ACAPI_Environment (APIEnv_GetProjectNotesID, &noteInfo))

But I couldn't find anything for the Site Details.

This should be possible (I've noticed that some of the addons are adding/changing project properties).

Good hint @Miha Nahtigal! With that info I was able to find something 😉

It's together with the AutoText stuff. Check out ACAPI_AutoText_GetAutoTexts.
