#2864 new enhancement

Pass alias, name, message etc to applescript on event

Reported by: dezoe Owned by: applmak
Milestone: Good ideas for later Component: AppleScript
Version: Severity: normal
Keywords: applescript Cc:
Patch Status:


I'd like to pass username or message to an applescript on events. %n, %a, %m & %t are available for 'Speak specific text' - couldn't these vars be passed to an applescript run by the 'Run an applescript'-action?

Applescripting was greatly improved in 1.2, I'd say this has been done.

This was never fixed. See e.g. #11363.

I would really like to see this. Currently there is no easy way to access messages via AppleScript. Some pretty cool things could be done with this.

+1. Running a script when an event happens is nearly useless without the script being able to see at least (in the case of message-related events) the message sender and message text. For the simplest implementation, maybe just pipe the key/value pairs in some easy-to-parse format to the script's STDIN?
