Hi, i found that script in this forum, it works, but i want to change some things, it will be great if you can help me because i have no experience with Apple scripting.
This is the script:
property theAttachmentPath : (path to desktop) as Unicode text property add_events : "Importieren" -- The title of the "Add Events" dialog on your system. property cal_name : "myCalendar" -- The name of the target calendar. using terms from application "Mail" on perform mail action with messages theMessages for rule theRule tell application "Mail" repeat with This_Message in theMessages repeat with ma in mail attachments of This_Message set n to name of ma if n ends with ".ics" then save ma in file (theAttachmentPath & n) my import_to_iCal(theAttachmentPath & n) end if end repeat end repeat end tell end perform mail action with messages end using terms from on import_to_iCal(file_path) tell application "iCal" activate set c to (count events of calendar cal_name) ignoring application responses open file file_path end ignoring end tell tell application "System Events" tell application process "iCal" set frontmost to true tell window add_events repeat until (it exists) delay 0.2 end repeat click pop up button 1 repeat until (menu 1 of pop up button 1 exists) delay 0.2 end repeat click menu item cal_name of menu 1 of pop up button 1 repeat while (menu 1 of pop up button 1 exists) delay 0.2 end repeat click button "OK" end tell end tell end tell tell application "iCal" repeat until ((count events of calendar cal_name) > c) delay 0.2 end repeat end tell tell application "Finder" to delete file file_path end import_to_iCal
There are two things i want to change:
- the script is not deleting the ics-file on the desktop in every case
- i want to delete the Email with the ics-file automaticly after import to iCal.
So can you tell me, how to safe the ics-file not to dektop but to the trash, and the import from the trash to iCal (can i substitute “desktop” in the script with “trash”). The trash will be cleaned from time to time.
Should i create a rule to delete Emails with an ics-file ? Then i think i have to be sure, that before deleting the email, the ics-file has to be imported to iCal.
As result of this, i want to have a workflow, that when i get a email with ics-file, that this ics-Event will be imported to iCal and there is nothing mor to delete (no email and no ics-file).
Thanks for your help
