Sample text

The desktop “window” and the desktop are actually the same object, whereas all other windows are distinct from the objects they belong to and may have different properties. For example, the Position property of a disk is different from the Position property of the disk’s window. The desktop doesn’t have most of the characteristics of windows, so you can’t refer to properties such as Bounds, Position, and so on. If you are performing operations on Finder windows that involve these properties, you may want to get a list of windows that doesn’t include the desktop.

Unlike other files, an alias file also has this property: original item A reference to the original item associated with the alias file. Class: Reference Modifiable: No ELEMENT CLASSES None COMMANDS HANDLED Clean Up, Copy, Count, Data Size, Delete, Duplicate, Eject, Empty, Exists, Get, Make, Move, Open, Print, Put Away, Reveal, Select, Sort, Update DEFAULT VALUE CLASS RETURNED Reference to a file or, if you use the plural form alias files, a list of references. EXAMPLE If you run this script from the Script Editor, it reveals the original items for any alias files that are currently selected: tell application "Finder" get selection repeat with moose in result if original item of moose exists then reveal original item of moose end if end repeat end tell Object Class Definitions 29 C H A P T E R 2 Finder Objects The Get statement in this script returns a list of references to the selected items.

Click at the point in your script where you want to paste the reference. 5. Choose Paste Reference from the Edit menu. Windows are also elements of the Finder application. You can address a Tell statement to a Finder window anywhere in a script: tell front window of application "Finder" close end tell Because window is a standard AppleScript term, AppleScript can interpret this script correctly. However, when it compiles a script, AppleScript doesn’t look up the Finder’s terminology definitions until after it has compiled the first line of the first Tell statement that addresses the Finder.
