AppleScript terminology dictionary (object model and verbs)

I found a utility (HTMLDictionary) which does a good job of converting AppleScript dictionaries to HTML. Here is Indigo's dictionary, which might be a good reference bookmark to have around.

Regards,
Matt

Hi Dylan,

Probably not until the latest AppleScript changes (and future additions over the next few builds) are solidified some more. But you do know that the Script Editor can open the dictionary of the IndigoServer to show you the new verbs, right?

Regards,
Matt

FYI, I've updated the posted AppleScript dictionary (link in first post of thread) for the 2.0 changes.

Is the dictionary up to date for 3.0 (and leopard) in the 3.0b8 release? When I open the dictionary in script editor in leopard all I see is the required section.



hey geekinsc, make sure u open the 'indigoserver' dict, not the client.

New version coming for 4.0?

Just curious, not pushing.

I tore down my Indigo installation at my second home, and now I'm starting to rebuild it after a major remodel (is there any other kind?) This will really help in the scripting I do. TIA.

Re: New version coming for 4.0?

The currently posted dictionary (link in top most post) is pretty recent. It hasn't been updated for 4.0 yet, but includes all of the 3.0 changes. The only change for 4.0 at this point are some additional Trigger Action model attributes. We'll update the posted dictionary after 4.0 ships as well.

The dictionary link is broken and takes you back to the Indigo home page. Is the dictionary updated for the latest version?

Thanks,
Matthew

Re: AppleScript terminology dictionary (object model and ver

Is there an AppleScript comand to start and stop the Indigo server?
Obviously, this would have to be outside of Indigo.
I'm thinking of a Cron call to an AppleScript (or other script) or a remote call to "restart" the Indigo server in case something has locked up Indigo.
Right now, I have to manually stop & start Indigo via remote login using iTeleport or Timbiktu.

Re: AppleScript terminology dictionary (object model and ver

To stop the server:
Code: Select all
tell application "IndigoServer"
   quit
end tell


To start the server:
Code: Select all
tell application "Finder"
   open POSIX file "/Library/Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Indigo 6/IndigoServer.app"
end tell
