Applescript popumenu of a folder 'content


    Aug 11 2010 | 10:20 pm
    Hi, I would like to make a menu with applescript wich displays the content of a folder and let an user to choose a file from the list… Here's the line wich feeds my shell object:
    osascript -e 'tell application "Finder"' -e 'set file_list to name of every file of entire contents of alias "Macbook Pro:XXX:"' -e 'set blah to (choose from list file_list with prompt "Wich file ?" Ok button name "Ok" cancel button name "Annuler")' -e 'end tell'
    Nothing occurs…Do you have any clue about this ? Thx.

      I don't know, but you've spelt which incorrectly, which might matter.

      It wasn't about your English, it was about the spelling of your tokens ;-)
      Something from this one could help you:
      HTH, Phil

      Thx for your response Phil but it still doesn't work. It could be a path issue from me…  I don't really understand the "Leopard" path… How can I reach the classical "/" from this "leopard" adress, I think that must be my mistake.

      It works on 10.6 but not with 10.5 for me.

      The folder path I put was just an example. Change it for your own path, and try first in Apple's "Script Editor". Also, search in the archives for AppleScript.
      Bye, Phil
