Connect to servers with Applescript using Keychain
Authored by: Snaro on Feb 02, '05 10:11:15AM
set thePath to (path to favorites folder from user domain as string) & "Alias to server"
will do nicely and is less error prone, e.g. if someone has his home directory on another disk/partition

Connect to servers with Applescript using Keychain
Authored by: Eravau on Feb 02, '05 11:49:26AM
You could actually shorten this line three more words by eliminating the from user domain phrase. AppleScript appears to default to the user domain if no domain is specified. While we're at it, let's just put it all on one line and eliminate a few other extraneous commands. By the way, thanks for reminding me that the Favorites folder was a special AppleScript variable. I was originally heading down the path to home & "Library:Favorites..." trail.

Final Code (line split for the screen width impaired):
tell application "Finder" to open alias 
((path to favorites folder as string) & "Alias to Server")
