Help with getting shell to understand my applescript!


    Apr 02 2013 | 3:48 pm
    Hi, I am making a small application that runs around youtube playing videos. I prototyped alot of my control in applescript before moving to max. I have managed to convert all my scripts into osacript so that they can be run through the shell object. But I am now stuck on this one
    tell application "Google Chrome" to activate tell application "System Events" tell process "Google Chrome" do shell script "/usr/local/bin/cliclick/ c:360,550" end tell end tell
    which I convert to
    osascript -e 'tell application "Google Chrome" to activate' -e 'tell application "System Events" to tell process "Google Chrome" to do shell script "/usr/local/bin/cliclick c:360, 550"'
    cliclick is a shell app that can use the mouse. the c is the command identifier for cliclick to click the mouse http://www.bluem.net/en/mac/cliclick/
    I have been translating code for the last few days, and this one just never works! any help you can offer is appreciated

      I found that it is the space in "c:360, 550" that throws cliclick off. Max automaticaly puts a space after comma's so changed the code to
      osascript -e 'tell application "Google Chrome" to activate' -e 'tell application "System Events" to tell process "Google Chrome" to do shell script "/usr/local/bin/cliclick c:360,550"'
