iChat Status

hello everyone

This is probably a really simple thing but I can’t seem to get Applescript to change the away/available message in iChat. I know that status is used to determine which mode the account is in, but I always get errors when attempting to change the message. I did figure out how to set the status

set status of app "ichat" to away --or available/idle

But that will keep the same message.

Is this what you are looking for:

tell application "iChat" to set status to away

or if you want to set a specific message and then set it to away or available:

	tell application "iChat"
		set theMess to "Yo, I am outie!"
		set status message to theMess
		set status to away --or available based on what you want to set it as.
	end tell

good luck,

Not for nothing, but Now Playing In iChat.
