APPLESCRIPT FORUM?

Recommended Posts

Is there a forum for applescript similar to the FM Forums?

I have an applescript triggering a FM script that works on a timed basis. The problem is that it goes at seemingly sporatic times also. The part in question is

"set TS to time string of mydate

if TS contains "9:4" and TS contains "AM" then

set BS to true

else if TS contains "12:4" and TS contains "PM" then

set BS to true

else if TS contains "3:4" and TS contains "PM" then

set BS to true

else if TS contains "7:4" and TS contains "PM" then

set BS to true

end if

if BS then

tell application "FileMaker Pro" ...."

the time is checked every 600 seconds.

AppleScript patiently waits for free processor time so timing is always an estimate. If you want to trigger events at exact times take a look at PowerKey Pro.

Outstanding product that I've used for years in various incarnations http://www.sophisticated.com

If you're REALLY into accurate time take a look at Vremya at http://www.lava.net/%7Ekirill/software/vremya.html
