Schedule calls in iCal directly from AddressBook
Authored by: rluttman on Feb 04, '04 01:52:00PM

As the hint states: Save as a Script file in the Address book plug-in folder. I did it that way and it works perfectly. it is an amazing little script.

Have you ever tried to save a script as a Script File when you can't get it to compile? Not to sound mean or terse, but you can't. THAT is the problem. If we could get it to compile, we could save it as a Script File. As it is, we're stuck saving it as a text file.

Same here. Using 10.3.2 and the Script works flawlessly. It even adds a link back to the Address Book entry in the "url" field in the To Do. Very nice.

BUT I did have to modify one thing: remove the backlashes before quotes. It's a silly thing, but maybe that's what makes Script Editor fail in compiling. Just a thought.

PS - I meant, I don't see backslashes in the script text as it appears on the web page here, but when I copied the text from Safari and pasted it into Script Editor, for some reason the quotes appeared with backslashes before them. I didn't instantly notice that. I just did a search/replace for
\"
to
"
and it compiled.

I made the script and installed it in the plug-in folder and it worked great. The next time I started my Mac, it wouldn't work at all. I have written new scripts and installed them in the folder, but it doesn't have any effect. When I run the script from Script Editor (not from the Address Book) it will open iCal, but that's it. Any suggestions?
