What am I doing wrong? I have these types of problems with applescript all the time. I try and read the dictionary for a program and start simple little scripts to utilize new terms. I usually make silly errors. Below is my logic when reading the Finder's dictionary and then a really simple set of instructions. Can I get some pointers? (* 1) the "application" is Finder 2) the application contains "item" ELEMENTS 3) "items" have PROPERTIES 4) the application has a special specifier PROPERTY called "selection" 5) the definition for "item" is vague or circular, it seems that the PROPERTY called "selection" of the application should be an "item" thus having all properties of "item" 6) when used this way every one of the following commented lines produces an error 7) what am i doing wrong, where does my train of thought contain an error? (because I am constantly fighting my own logic when trying to read AppleScript dictionaries to try new things) 8) explicitly, "selection" is not an "item" and thus has no PROPERTIES so i might not be able to get the description of the selection of the application *) tell application "Finder" activate set selt to selection set spos to position of front window --set spr0 to properties of selt --set spr1 to properties of selection --set spr2 to item properties of selt --set snm to displayed name of selt --set snm to item displayed name of selt end tell -- Kyle Olson _______________________________________________ Do not post admin requests to the list.
