I’ve made a droplet to quickly and easily transfer files between my computers. All that is working great! I would like to add a function whereby when the app is clicked open, the Drop Box folder on the networked computer is opened. The problem I’m having is the space in the Drop Box folder name. The script opens any folder without a space in the name. I realize I can just ‘do shell script’ it, but I’m stubborn.
Can someone please point out the correct way to escape the space in the folder name so it works with Finder’s ‘open location’ command?
This shell script works:
do shell script "open ./Volumes/username/Public/Drop\\ Box"
This works, too:
tell application "Finder" activate open location "afp://10.0.1.2/username/Desktop" end tell
This doesn’t work:
tell application "Finder" activate open location "afp://10.0.1.2/username/Public/Drop Box" end tell
Nor does this:
tell application "Finder" activate open location "afp://10.0.1.2/username/Public/Drop\\ Box" end tell
Now, I know what you’re thinking: Just use the working shell script version. That’s not the point. Like I said, I’m stubborn. I want to know how to do it with Finder.
Thanks in advance.
