Scripts to disable and enable password for lock screen after sleep or screen saver
Authored by: costee on Dec 07, '12 01:35:49PM

Is there any app, that records gui scripting like this?
Apple Script Editor doesn't work on System Preferences for example. I'd like to make a scroll direction switcher script.

Yes, you can open Automator and add the action "Watch Me Do". Press record and it will record your actions. If you then want to move that to an applescript, copy the actions and paste into AppleScript Editor to see the applescript code... where you can then modify it however needed. I haven't used it much so I can't say if it works on system preferences either but it's worth a try. Good luck.
