Can a script be born from a script?

Hi

I know this is an unusual question. But since a script is really somewhat of a macro, I just wondered if there is any way to script the creation of scripts that only change certain text characteristics in their steps. I know this could be a complicated answer. I am just trying to find out if there is some way to automate script creation and the naming of scripts.

Hi:

Yes, this is kinda unusual. Scripts cannot be created "automatically" to meet special conditions. I'm sure you could create multiple duplicate scripts with applescript or something like that. But that would be useless.

How bout you tell us what you are trying to accomplish and maybe there is a better way.

thanks for the answer

I have a whole bunch of scripts to write about 1500 that are the same that will deal with little buttons. The only differ in what result they produce as far as the text each holds in their script. So I was wondering if there was a way to insert calculations ( text) calculations somehow remotely.

Thanks

Well, you can have one scipt that checks the value of a field and acts accordingly. That would probably be more feasible than creating 1500 separate scripts for each condition. But like I said, you would have to explain specifically what you are trying to do in order for us to give you any useful pointers. Something to work with, dude.

But then you'd have to specify the field to target anyway...

The only possible thing IMO is to have it done with a portal, where each row could be a button with a GTRR to a "criteria" file, where each value is stored.

But then, it surely limits the use because of the fixed screen space it could use
