didn't work (10.0.4)
Authored by: beef on Jul 29, '01 10:33:36AM

I just tried this as instructed... but didn't work...

the directory where the files were located was a bit different... but I think I was using the right files... (there was no ....../contents/... or something like that.... maybe it's a bit different in 10.0.4)

did anyone actually get this to work?

I got it to work, but it didn't modify the application that I was most interested in changing (Internet Explorer namely).

The main trick I found was to make sure that alphaValue does not have a space in it (the directions look like they have a space), and make sure the capitalization is the same everywhere.

I successfully wrote a applescript to modify the Text Editor's transparency level.

It doens't work for me neither :

I've got this message : Can't get window 1 of "textEdit".

if anyone know where I'm wrong??
hope it's in my applescript syntaxe, but the syntaxe looks ok.
never mind.

Yeah, I think this hint is out dated and does not work.... a lot of the features of the System Events scripting does not always work....

This works fine in Panther (10.3.4, though the path is a little different).

I sucessfully copied and pasted this applescript to modify TextEdit.
