Any help would be most appreciated…
I am just trying to write a Finder script that - on opening a folder - will position its window, set its bounds and set whether icons/list/columns, depending on the number of items therein.
As a veteran and practiced Hypertalk programmer, I am really struggling with Applescript. I find Apple’s help is more-or-less incomprehensible !!! Is there any good resource with lots of simple examples to build on?
Well, if it’s wanting to figure out Applescript, you’ve come to the right place.
A good resource for ready made, open source scripts from which you can learn from can be found @ ScriptBuilders -on this site.
From there, you can find a ton of stuff that deal specifically with positioning windows, etc.
Also, a good starter resource is Apple’s Language Guide (found everywhere on macscripter.)
Hope this helps you, and enjoy!
I found an example to help.
I also browsed Apple’s Language Guide. It has not improved one iota from the paperback version I bought in 1994. Still impervious and indigestable…
