Schedule calls in iCal directly from AddressBook
Authored by: visigothe on Feb 04, '04 12:58:27PM

It works for me using 10.3.2 and iCal 1.5.2

Great script. I do have a few questions though. I am not an AppleScripter, but I am trying to understand a bit more of the syntax. In looking at the code, I couldn't quite figure out what "p with e" did. It is referenced several times throughout the script, but I don't see where it comes from originally. Is "p with e" defined in the dictionary of Address Book.app?

As iCal doesn't allow you to have timed "To Do"s (only date can be attached, not time), I'd love to see a modification that would create a new "Event" rather than just a To Do. Perhaps I will attempt to hack this script to do just that

I'm glad people like the script; it certainly helps me a lot. You'd think Apple would put some of this functionality in... but at least there's a way to add it in later. I love plug-ins.

I probably should have mentioned that it only runs on Panther, in which the plug-in architecture was added to Address Book. I see that most have figured that out already.

About "p with e"... This is part of the Address Book Script Suite. The full command is "perform action for person with anything". This hands off both the contact and the associated property (the one whose menu was used to get to the script).

Now, if they would only add the plug-in capability to iCal...
