Create a keyboard-shortcut for Show Package Contents
Authored by: wootest on Jul 25, '06 08:31:41AM

Not to be facetious or anything, but I quite like how it chose from my path button instead of my context action button just because my toolbar, like so many others, are not identical to the default configuration. ;) I do see that care has been taken to work around it when watching the source (in Contents/document.wflow of the downloadable Automator workflow), but it will need some particular nudging to get around my weird configuration, apparently.

I did test the script with a variety of toolbar configurations, and I got it to work no matter what the configuration for my machine.

Here's what I discovered when writing the workflow:
The GUI Scripting command telling it which "group" was affected by three items being on the toolbar: the Spotlight Search field, the Path Button, and the Action Button.

If, of those three, the Action Button was the only one present, then it needed to be "group 1"
If the Action Button and one of the other elements were present, it needed to be "group 2"
If all three elements were present, it needed to be "group 3"

Originally I was going to have users configure the script themselves by changing "group x" to match the above configuration, but I figured if I started trying with 3, I could work my way down and not run into conflict with the Path Button. Apparently I was wrong.

How is your toolbar configured, so I can test it out on my computer?

[back/forward], [view picker], [path popup], [action menu].
