yep - i think third thread today LOL
in any case.
i used to have this to choose my folder:
on set_choose_folder() set the_site_folder to (choose folder) as string end set_choose_folder
it has now turned into this:
on set_choose_folder() -- set the_site_folder to (choose folder) as string set can choose directories of open panel to true set can choose files of open panel to false display open panel attached to window "main" end set_choose_folder on panel ended theObject with result withResult if withResult is 1 then set the_site_folder to item 1 of (path name of open panel as list) set the_site_folder to the_site_folder as string end if end panel ended
I am now getting a error of cant getting alias/
i got this open panel code from this: http://developer.apple.com/documentation/AppleScript/Reference/StudioReference/sr10_panel_suite/sr_panel.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/20011224-ASKPanelSuite.Classes.NSOpenPanel
the script itself seems to be working - but my other scripts need the the_site_folder as a string or in the way it got received from the original script i had.
what i basically want is the open panel to be attached to the main window
lastly, one more thing. if i hit the choose folder button. it works once. then, if i try to do it again, i get the funk sound. is it restricted in some way? can it be told to run several times (to open the open panel)?
