i’m making a quick little application launcher for 20 or so machines, with different programs and capabilities.
what i’d like to do is have different buttons be enabled or disabled depending on boolean values determined by the script. for example, if a dvd-r is detected, the button to start iDVD should be enabled - no burner, button is disabled…
so, is there a way to “grey out” a button given a false boolean, and vice versa?
You can set the “enabled” property of the button to false and that will grey it out. Do you have the latest version of the “Applescript Studio Terminology Reference”? The version I have is 1.2. It covers all the elements used in Interface Builder (I think).
