10.5: How to launch-and-hide via AppleScript in 10.5
Authored by: GrandMauvaisDan on Jan 29, '09 09:11:57AM
I just did some quick testing and found that if Mail is not already open you need a delay between
tell application "Mail" to activate
and
tell application "Finder" to set visible of process "Mail" to false
Otherwise, Finder tries to set it hidden before Mail finishes launching. The second activate command just happens to take enough time to serve as the needed delay.
