I start to explore the possibilities of Xcode and applescriptobjC. I have no knowledge of C / objective C.
I made a program to import excel files containing contacts or meetings into Contacts or Calendar. It works fine. To progress, I want to add the ability to remember the state of a checkbox (in a plist file).
With the help of Shane Stanley’s book, I managed to bind the checkbox to “Shared User Defaults Controller”.
The “Controller key” is set to “values”. The Model Key Path is set to a name “CheckStateBox”.
What I don’t understand is how can I get and utilize the state of the check box in my script ?
Thanks for your help,
if (chaeckBox’s state as integer) = 1 then
– put your code here
Thanks for the reply.
I still don’t understand.
Property CheckStateBox is not declared at the beginning of the script.
If I want to use “CheckStateBox”, I have an error message (the variable CheckStateBox is not declared)
If I try to declare property CheckStateBox (as missing value or true or false), how can I make a link between this property and the binding (from the checkbox to “Shared User Defaults Controller”) ?
you cannot bind a property in the script and a property of an UI element at the same time to User Defaults.
Either bind the UI element, then retrieve the value with NSUserDefaults’s standardUserDefaults()'s integerForKey_()
Or bind the script property to the UI element, then load/save the value from/to User Defaults programmatically
I understand and it works perfectly !
