Reading property list items with System Events
Authored by: anoved on Dec 30, '06 07:19:17PM

Just for the sake of reference, here is another way to read a property list preference item with plain AppleScript:

tell application "System Events"
	set dockProps to property list file "~/Library/Preferences/"
	set dockSide to the value of the property list item "orientation" of dockProps
end tell

Again, dockSide should end up with the value of the orientation property. Just an alternative to do shell script.
