Hello, I’m picking up AppleScript and have a problem of understaning some how AppleScript copes with handles with labeled paramters.
Consider the following script
set myName to "Agnar Renolen" set wifeName to replace of myName into "Jana" instead of "Agnar" set authorName to replace of myName into "Mykle" instead of "Renolen" set aFarmer to replace of myName into "rari" instead of "nar Renol" set stillMyName to replace of myName into "Blabla" instead of "Blabla" to replace of aString into newStr instead of subStr set iStart to offset of subStr in aString if iStart is 0 then return aString end if set iEnd to iStart + (length of subStr) if iStart is 1 then set str1 to "" else set str1 to (text from character 1 to character (iStart - 1) of aString) end if set iLast to count characters in aString if iEnd is greater than iLast then set str2 to "" else set str2 to (text from character iEnd to character iLast of aString) end if return str1 & newStr & str2 end replace
This script works as intended. But:
1)Why can’t I replace “of” with “from” in the handler declaration, i.e:
to replace from aString into newStr instead of subStr
This generates a compiler error.
2) How can I call this handler from within a tell block. I can’t find a syntax that works?
(It works if I redeclare the handler to have positional parameters)
