I am working on an AppleScript Studio application that fetches and posts content from a remote MySQL database using XML-RPC calls. I have this content returned to a window with a webview widget.
It displays the content beautifully, appropriately sizing and formatting text and images, much nicer for non-skilled end users to look at than returning the content to a text view inside a scroll view, but… (yes, there is always a catch, isn’t there)
I can not figure out how to set the content of that webView to “Editable”. I have heard that this can be done, for instance, Mac OS X Mail.app uses a webView for the text area when composing and reading mail messages. Of course Mail.app is also written in objective-C. Is this to much to ask of AppleScript? I have always been a fan of scripting languages. I have been slowly (painfully slow) learning Cocoa in Xcode over the last several months, still without a real workable knowledge of anything at all, but I became fairly proficient in PHP and OO PHP in a matter of 5-6 weeks. It is probably a defect in my brain, but I just “get” appleScript. Just playing with it for a few hours I created apps and gadgets that I couldn’t even begin in Cocoa. !
Can I make a webView object editable in AppleScript Studio?
Kind regards, and my compliments to this tremendously useful site and it’s willing and helpful community. Honored to be a part of this. Hope to contribute something useful soon!
