Essentially, I am trying to automate all my telephone calls via my Powerbook’s Address Book in OSX, using a specific VoIP client (international calls for $0.05/Minute).
I have been making some progress with my earlier development for a dropdown within the Address Book: it now reliably adds ‘dial: 1 800 1234 1234’, to the dropdown that already shows ‘Large Type’.
So far, I can take a record of a number directly from the Address Book and send it on to another App. However, in the instance of the required VoIP client, it seems only able to receive a number using:
dial “1 800 1234 1234”
However, I need to use one script that adjusts itself according to whichever number was selected from the Address Book. Any ideas? I am currently using this script, to dynamically select the number:
tell application “VoIP_App” to activate
using terms from application “Address Book”
on action property
end action property
on action title for p with e return "Dial : " & value of e end action title on should enable action for p with e return true end should enable action on perform action for p with e tell application "VoIP_App" dial value of e end tell end perform action
end using terms from
say “dialing” using “Victoria”
If you can help me out on this, please let me know asap! I am banging my head against the wall, seemingly only moments from the final script…
