    For Windows, Send Event; For OS X, Applescript To search Computer Hard Drive

    rouelf

      Here is a challenge for those versed in Windows Command Line and Applescript usage:

      A script to work in Windows and OS X, that searches the local hard drive for a specified “Filename”, and return the path of the Filename to a variable. For windows probably need to use “Send Event”; for OS X probably need to use AppleScript. Maybe look Something like:

       

      # ———— Check if the current platform is Mac

      If [ Get ( SystemPlatform ) = 1

      Perform Applescript [ ……….. ]

      Set Variable [ $Filename_Path ; Value: ……. ]

       

      # ———— Check if the current platform is Windows

      Else If [ Get ( SystemPlatform ) = -2 ]

      Send Event [ ………. ]

      Set Variable [ $Filename_Path ; Value: ……. ]

      End If

       

      # ———— Not Found

      If [ $Filename_Path = “” ]

      Show Custom Dialog [ “File Not Found” ; “File Not Found” ]

      End If

       

      Much Appreciated !!
