Jump to the beginning of a movie in DVD Player
Authored by: CompositionB on Mar 12, '05 01:31:26PM

Three questions about your code:

1. When I insert a DVD the dialog pops up, but is not active, so it takes two clicks to make a selection and pressing return doesn't work for "yes" (unless I click and then press it). I'm guessing this is just the lack of a keyword in the dialog command or one additional line of code to activate the dialog box, but with my limited scripting ability I couldn't tell you what's missing.

2. Why did you revise the final "else" to check for the cancel button instead of just exiting on anything other than a yes or no?

3. Why do you recommend saving the code as a compiled script? I have it saved as a normal script, and set to run when a DVD is inserted. It doesn't bring up the script editor, just runs like you'd expect. I see no benefit to saving it as an application and if I'm not mistaken doing so would make the script un-editable.
