A fourth way
Authored by: boredzo on Sep 28, '06 07:29:22PM

Here's a fourth syntax you can use:

tell application "System Events"
	click menu item "Size" ¬
		in menu "Arrange By" of menu item "Arrange By" ¬
		in menu "View" of menu bar item "View" ¬
		in menu bar 1 of process "Finder"
end tell

(“of” and “in” are synonyms, in case you're wondering.)

Yeah, I know you can get child items in a bottom-up way rather than a top-down one, but it's less intuitive to me. I guess you do avoid all the () and 's in there. I still like my way better ;)
