Applescript beginner using OS 9.2 and Applescript 1.8.3
I am trying to get my code to check whether a specific folder directory on a website exists before sending another set of code to download files from that directory. I already have reliable code to download the files from the desired folder.
Can you use an If/Then combination to do this? I have tried
tell application “netscape communicator”
if (URL “http://abc.def.hij” exists) then
display dialog “it exists!!”
in many different configurations but can not get it to compile.
I know this is a little late for a reply but I just found some interesting code and remembered there was someone trying to do this. Hope this helps.
set strURLPath to "http://someURL"
set strPathToFile to "Mac HD:Desktop Folder:somefile.htm"
tell application "URL Access Scripting"
with timeout of 50 seconds
download strURLPath to file strPathToFile replacing yes
set blnStatus to true
on error err
set blnStatus to false
if blnStatus = true then --then it succeeded
--It exists, do something
else --it failed
--It failed, do something else
I just installed InDesign and found a bunch of great scripts from Write Track on the disc.
This code was borrowed from WT’s hyperlink verifier.
