Applescripting in Indigo 7


I had this working, and it took me an aour to find this soultion, but since upgrading, it seems broken.

Has this been depreciated with Indigo 7 ?

If someone can share a python script that will allow me to loop a specific song / file number in a specific playlist, in iTunes, not loop the entire playlist, just a particular FIRE MP3 (siren) , that would be very helpful.
Code: Select all
tell application "iTunes"
   set the sound volume to 100
   play track 1 of user playlist "Fire"
   tell application "System Events" to tell process "iTunes"'s menu bar 1's menu bar item "Controls"'s menu 1's menu item "Repeat"'s menu 1
      #perform action "AXPress" of menu item "Off"
      perform action "AXPress" of menu item "All"
      #perform action "AXPress" of menu item "One"
   end tell
end tell

Re: Applescripting in Indigo 7

Your script doesn't target Indigo at all so I'm not sure how Indigo 7 could have broken it.

Re: Applescripting in Indigo 7

is it an external AppleScript that's stored in the Indigo 6 folder structure? I7 may not be able to find it.

Re: Applescripting in Indigo 7

Just curious.. Not using AppleScript to control Indigo, but when I try this:

Code: Select all
tell application "IndigoServer"
   brighten device named "Kitchen-Bar" to 15
end tell

I get an error message: Application isn't running....

Re: Applescripting in Indigo 7

That is an osx bug. Has been discussed many times before. No real solution besides restart.

Re: Applescripting in Indigo 7

It's discussed here with some workarounds: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=12857&p=87000#p87000

What worked for me was:

So - bottom line: if you see this error first make sure you have no other copies of the on any mounted hard drive. This would likely be because you have previous versions still installed, so look in these locations:

/Library/Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Indigo 6/

But not until I rebooted the machine and Indigo.
