Ugh I'm a total noob

There’s a command or term for text boxes right?

What I want to do is make a script that allows you to make a new post on a fourm or on a bulletin on myspace. You could call up the script with the voice command then type in a text box (how do I make them bigger?) what you wanted to post and then it would so you don’t have to even go to the website.

Instead of a text box you could try this, presuming that the variable with the text in is the_text:

tell application "TextEdit"
set the_text to the text of the front document
end tell

This would allow you to even save often used texts as a txt file and you’d have a easy to use text box.

To enlarge a dialog text box, there is a very imperfect tecnique:

display dialog "hello" default answer return & return & return & return & return

This would give a pre-filled text box of 6 lines. Add or remove &returns to change the number of lines.
Hope this helped!

Ok cool is there a way to make the text from the

display dialog "hello" default answer return & return & return & return & return

script post to say these fourms in this topic? Thank you!

being a noob only means that your name begins with no and ends with ob.


some people don’t have a name believieve it or not.

So noob is at least a name.

personally, I would call myself noob prince or something like that. Hey braddahs, I’m the noob prince, you know.

well I couldn’t call myself noob cause I know far more than a noob. But maybe a noob prince.

So have you laghed yet.

freakin dorks.

at least you’re not a boon.

That’s noob spelled backwards.

personally, I wouldn’t know why anybody would make like a radar of themself being a beginner. You know, you just post something and that’s it. next time don’t do that. Saying that you’re a noob is so noob!


wtf? What are you on, kel?
