Hi all. I have just really jumped into Applescript programing and am creating a program to help me with a workflow. The issue have been wrestling with for several days now is how to reference items that are in tabs, in such a way that I don’t get errors.
I have a window called “main” and I have a large Tab-View area which takes up my whole window I have given this the label “toolKit” (if I understand the labeling scheme correctly.). The tab I am currently trying to access is called “sortAndRename”. In this tab is a text item (label) called “organizedOverTotal”
My code is in the “awake on nib” section and is as such:
set content of text field "organizedOverTotal" of window "main" to "stuff"
To which I get this applescript error:
So I try this code instead:
set content of text field "organizedOverTotal" of tab view "sortAndName" of tab "toolKit" of window "main" to "stuff"
Which produces this build-time error:
tell tab view 1 of window 1 set content of text field "organizedOverTotal" to "stuff" end tell
gives me this:
I don’t know where to go from here. I’ve tried all that I can. I’ve searched for documented info, but I’m not finding anything that helps. I can get text fields outside of tabs to change, but I just can’t get ones inside tabs to change.
Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks much.
