I am searching for a file or directory. But when “theResult” is null, I get a applescript error - “Error of Type 1 has occurred (1).” This error occurs on the ‘set theResult…’ line of code below. Why the error? How do I avoid?
on getShellResults(theWindow) set theSearchString to (contents of text field "search" of theWindow as string) set theWD to "/Library/Application Support/" set theResult to do shell script ("ls -a1 " & quoted form of theWD & " | grep -i '.*" & theSearchString & ".*'") popTable(theResult, theWD) end getShellResults
