I have an apple script to mount a remote volume via the script however it leaves the

finder window on top.

How do I modify my apple script to mount the remote volume hidden or with out spawning

a new finder window, leaving Filemaker the active application?

You may have an activate command after tell app "Finder".

If so, then delete it.

Here is a sample applescript I use to check for and mount needed volumes.

It is run from within a Perform Applscript Script Step.

--get all the volumes mounted on your desktop

tell application "Finder"

set theVOLUMES to every disk in desktop

end tell

set theExistingVolumes to {}

--make a list of all the volume names

repeat with i in theVOLUMES

set a to name of i

set end of theExistingVolumes to a

end repeat

--See if the volume is mounted

if "VolumeOne" is not in theExistingVolumes then

try

mount volume "afp://name:[email protected]/VolumeOne"

end try

end if

if "VolumeTwo" is not in theExistingVolumes then

try

mount volume "afp://name:[email protected]/VolumeTwo"

end try

end if
