tell application "Finder" -- to make Acrobat the active application

How can I tell the finder to make Adobe Acrobat the active appication (to put it in the foreground, that is-- on top of any other active windows) ??

thanks :slight_smile:

also… can anyone recommend any intro books on AppleScript that wouldn’t be so hard for a non-programmer to read ?


hi steven,

welcome to Macscripter. Hope this helps:

  1. sort of depends on the version, but you shouldn’t have to tell the Finder anything:

tell application "Acrobat 6.0 Standard"
end tell
