Dialog Box

Hello, friends

I can’t solve this problem:
several files are coming from computer A to one folder at computer B and using “on adding folder files…” command, I want to display one dialog box.
But, because there are several files coming into the folder, the “trigger” (adding folders) repeats several times, so several dialog boxes appears.

How to make it doesn’t happen?

lets have a look at your code, as it maybe just a repeat issue that needs tidying up…

Resemble a behavior described some times ago in ASUsersList.
Some dropped files had the Quarantine bit set others hadn’t so the script received two separated groups of files.
Shane STANLEY gave a script getting rid of that.
Here it is :

# Must be saved in a stay-open applet
use AppleScript version "2.4" -- Yosemite (10.10) or later
use framework "Foundation"
use scripting additions
property filesToOpen : {}

on open fileList
	set my filesToOpen to my filesToOpen & fileList
	-- cancel any pending performSelector: requests
	current application's NSObject's cancelPreviousPerformRequestsWithTarget:me
	-- handle files after a short delay in case further events are received
	tell me to performSelector:"doOpen" withObject:(missing value) afterDelay:0.5
end open

on doOpen()
	copy my filesToOpen to fileList
	set my filesToOpen to {} -- reset for next time
	set aRes to length of fileList
	display dialog aRes as string
	repeat with i in fileList
		set j to POSIX path of i
		display dialog j
	end repeat
	tell me to quit
end doOpen

on quit
	continue quit
end quit
