Search the OLGA tabulature archives for iTunes songs
Authored by: laughlin on Jul 25, '03 04:01:43PM

I have a question regarding this applescript. I am brand new to applescripting. So new that I just recieved my copy of Applescript in a Nuthshell today :).
I was wondering how you would be able to search a website using this script that puts the alphabetical letter of whatever band in front of the artist.
example: I would like to use this for mxtabs.net if i search for the song battery from metallica i get
http://mxtabs.net/tabs.php?path=Guitar,m,799,Metallica,Battery,3458

then Ramones beat on the brat gives me
http://mxtabs.net/tabs.php?path=Guitar,r,1026,Ramones,Beat+On+The+Brats,93341

So i see that not only does the letter change but there is an numerical number to go with each artist. So I suppose that this site would be nearly impossible to script.

If anyone has any input please let me know.

Thanks

Ok, if you want to know the basic commands you can open the Script Editor and then File>Open Dictionary>Standard Additions
This seems to have a lot of standard commands in it.

It may also be the case that those urls that you are seeing as output on that site are results of the search and not the search itself. What I mean to say is, try out the method I used in this script and it might just work do start the search and then you will see the familiar odd numberings and stuff.maybe put " marks where you think they should go to group artist and song separately ... if you can figure out how
good luck!
