iCal event

I’d like to create an automator workflow which when activated/run allows:

  1. the user to answer a question
  2. take the answer and create an iCal event out of it

What I can’t figure out is how to take the “answer” from “Ask for Text” and have that entered into the “name” of “New iCal Event”

Suggestions or direction?


  1. Get the answer:
set answer to text returned of (display dialog "Enter some text for the event" default answer "event text")
  1. Create the iCal event: http://www.mactech.com/articles/mactech/Vol.21/21.11/ScriptingiCal/index.html

Good luck!
