I am very experienced in writing programs in Applesoft BASIC, but still have problems with simple things in Applescript. What I would like to do is display a box that shows progress of a long action, without the buttons that “display dialog” forces. It would be something like this:
20 FOR I = 1 TO X
40 PRINT "DOING "; I; " OF "; X
Certainly I can use
Display dialog I & " of " & X
and get something like it, but I don’t want a user action; I just want it to display progress.
What does Applescript offer that does something like that?
