I'm trying to write a small utility that performs some actions based
upon the URL of the current web page. I assumed that the following
would give me a variable of the correct type for searching the
keychain, however it appears I'm wrong. If I hard-code 'keyName' to
the address of the page then the retrieval works fine.
tell application "Safari"
set theURL to the URL of document 1
set keyName to theURL as text
-- at this point 'keyName' seems to be correct, but doesn't work.
-- if I 'set keyName to "www.apple.com"' then it works
I'm assuming that the coercion of URL to text is not working as I
expect and 'keyName' actually contains some extraneous non-visible
What's the correct way to get a URL as plain text?
I did try searching the archives and tried a few things that I saw
there but I'm still stuck. Suffice to say this is very frustrating.
This is my first AppleScript and I would never have thought I'd be
stumped by something that seems so simple!
Thanks for your help,
