10.4: Two ways to bypass Spotlight 'find-as-you-type'
Authored by: afb on Sep 09, '05 04:44:22PM
A simple applescript will do the job in LaunchBar.
I found this on the app's mailing list, but I didn't save the message, so I can't give the author credit.
on handle_string(s)
	set search_string to s
	tell application "System Events"
		keystroke " " using {option down, shift down}
		delay 1
		keystroke search_string
	end tell
end handle_string
Put the script into your LB config. When you bring up the script onto the bar, hit the spacebar, as if you were searching with an internet search shortcut, and the script uses GUI scripting to bring up the results in the spotlight window (not the menu).

Note that if you've changed the default keyboard shortcut for the window, you'll need to change this line: keystroke " " using {option down, shift down}
