The general question from my specific problem is how to interact WITH a running Applescript without leaving the program you a currently in. Its kind of the opposite question of how to USE Applescript to interact with other programs.
I need to go through a lot of web pages and input information from them into a spreadsheet. I have somewhat automated the process with an Applescript that takes an webpage as input and then opens its relevant links one by one, waiting for a click in a dialog box before proceeding to the next.
If you want to run the script, use http://www.resultat.dk/tennis/challenger-singler/champaign/resultater/ as input to the dialog box
Now I would like to automate it a bit further so I didn´t have to leave the spreadsheet to click the dialog box when going to the next webpage. Is there a way to force the Applescript proceed without me actually clicking the dialog box? I have tried to save the script as an application (“hent2”) and made another script to sent an “enter” keystroke to it while it is running (and then activate the new script through some kind of hotkey):
tell application "System Events" tell application "hent2" to activate key code 36 end tell
It does´t do anything.
Any suggestions on how to proceed? Either with the “sent keystroke to Applescript” or a more elegant solution?
