I’ve got a heap of folders with the same script attached.
I want to automate the adding of a folder action to each folder. I can set the folder action for new folders, but can’t find how to check the enabled of the existing attached script.
Anyone know how please?
set p2ftpDownloads to ((path to desktop) & "ftp Downloads") as text set p2me to path to of me tell application "Finder" to set p2cofme to container of (path to me) as text set p2FAS to (path to Folder Action scripts folder) as text set saveFolderAction to (p2cofme & "ftp Downloader.scpt") as text try tell application "Finder" if exists file ((p2FAS & "ftp Downloader.scpt") as text) then move file "ftp Downloader.scpt" of folder p2FAS to trash end if copy file saveFolderAction to folder p2FAS # 'with replacing' not allowed end tell on error errmsg display dialog errmsg end try tell application "Finder" set TempList to folders of folder p2ftpDownloads as list end tell tell application "System Events" set folder actions enabled to true repeat with eachFolder in TempList try attach action to (eachFolder as alias) using ((p2FAS & "ftp Downloader.scpt") as text) say name of eachFolder as text on error errmsg number errNum if errNum = -48 then -- Folder action already exists, but is it active? if not (folder action "ftp Downloader.scpt" of eachFolder is enabled) then # doesn't work --set enabled of eachFolder's folder action (("ftp Downloader.scpt") as text) to true end if end if display dialog errmsg & return & errNum end try end repeat end tell
