Getting information from a plist file

Recommended Posts


I've been doing some search on how to Get the content of a plist file within FileMaker Pro and the only information I am getting are links on "Where is FileMaker plist preference path located".

I have been able to perform this action in using "Perform AppleScript...."


Are there another way then using "Perform AppleScript"?

tell application "System Events" to tell property list file ("Volumes:NO NAME:NX5U.plist")

set value of property list item "EventNo" to "44"

end tell

It depends. There are several kinds of plist files. The XML kind can be imported using a custom XSLT stylesheet. Do a search on these forums for "plist", with Fenton as the author, to find some examples.
