Subject: Change a aJSON list to an Applescript list?

G’day

I’m very slowly making progress in getting my Application “Mail Manager” to a saleable state. So much to learn about.

However, I’m using a subscriion model via fastSpring, and need to check monthly if the serial number for each App is still in FastSprings valid serials active list.

This list is downloadable as a JSON file, and I’m trying to work out how to interpret that information into an Applescript list.

This list is downloadable as a JSON file, and I’m trying to work out how to interpret that information into an Applescript list.

The JSON API is in the form…

{
  "action": "subscription.getall",
  "result": "success",
  "nextPage": 3,
  "subscriptions": [
    "khyNPLY3TYiQhBfHyjZINg",

    "V5wXtLilSsWGkMYSiLVy2g",
    "MseNZ_LBRu63R84k9knIKg"
  ]
}
I’ve found a page on GitHub that espouses Json Helper, but cannot for the life of me work out how to add this to my App.

I just need to check if the localised, encrypted serial number is in the JSON list. Is it possible to convert the JSON list to text, and just see if the  text ‘contains’ the serial number. Inelegant, but if it would work????

Any advice please?

Regards

Santa

Blaming someone else every time you fail to understand something gets very tiresome after a while. It's not something peculiar to GraphicConverter -- you may have seen com.apple.ScriptEditor2, for example -- and if more developers did it, it would make writing scripts where people use multiple versions a damn sight easier. Thorsten deserves a thankyou note, not blame-shifting.

If the command is going to work with every version of GraphicConverter, then it doesn't matter which version's name you use terms from. And if it isn't going to work with every version of GraphicConverter, you can't use it anyway.

Here's the first link that comes up on a Google search on "using terms from":

A terms block dictates which application's dictionary AppleScript should get the enclosed terminology from, without actually targeting that application. Terminology is resolved at compile time; therefore the application must be a literal application specifier (otherwise there's a compile-time error, "Can't make some data into the expected type"). A terms block is important only at compile time (and decompile time); it is effectively ignored at runtime.
It's from 'AppleScript: The Definitive Guide', 2nd Edition by Matt Neuburg. You should read it some time.

Re: What's the REAL problem, please?

Thank you Andrew

However, as  cannot test your suggestion, I want to make myself absolutely clear on my understanding of what you’re saying.

Thorsten has changed his App name from just ‘GraphicConverter’, to now  ‘GraphicConverter 10’, and presumably in the future to  ‘GraphicConverter 11’,  ‘GraphicConverter 12', etc.. He rarely changes his dictionary options.

If (because I’m always recompiling), I use  ‘GraphicConverter 10’ now, and the present bundle identifier  is “com.lemkesoft.graphicconverter10”, will future bundle identifiers “com.lemkesoft.graphicconverter11”, “com.lemkesoft.graphicconverter12” work with my code?


Thank you for offering a ray of hope!!

At compile time, yes but that is _largely_ irrelevant at rub time

You can put anything in your 'using terms from' statement - I'd go with 'Graphic Converter' - and when you hit compile the Script Editor will look for a matching application. If it can't find one it will prompt you for which application you're referring to, then it will load the appropriate dictionary, compile the app, and you're good to go. This app is *never* referenced again - at least until you recompile. 

The only time this could become an issue is if the dictionary varies between application versions and there is no backwards compatibility (which is the responsibility of the application developer, not you), such as if the commands in older versions are not supported in the newer version.

Re: What's the REAL problem, please?

Brian Christmas
 

Shane, look, I really, really appreciate your advice, but I cannot for the life of me see how it changes my situation.

In order to get ‘using terms from’ to work, I have to enter a non-variable item, such as in my example below. The commented line #using terms from   (application id theApp) shows what I WANT to use, but still doesn’t work.

To get using terms from to work, I’m still restricted to knowing the exact name of the bundle identifier, which I REALLY absolutely need as a variable.

The possible name are …

GraphicConverter

GraphicConverter 10

GraphicConverter 11     (the next release)

Even other App works with a defined bundle identifier that does not alter between releases, but Thorsten in his infinite wisdom, has decided to link bundle indentifiers to version releases from now on. Version releases have numbers because of App Store release. Why he decided to add the same number to his bundle identifiers only he knows, but I’ve sent a grumbling email to him pointing out the problem it causes.

Is there any way around this situation? OR, am I up the proverbial creek without a paddle?

Yes: read the AppleScript Language Guide, or buy one of the beginner AppleScript books. This has nothing to do with Script Debugger or GraphicConverter -- it's AppleScript 101: if you use a variable for the target, either name or id, there's no way AppleScript can know at compile time which application's terminology to use.

This is REALLY important
This is REALLY basic.

G’day

I’m trying altering code in my printing App to be able to use almost ANY recent version of different printing Apps.

So, I've resorted to trying to open each app with its bundle identifier.

Compiled OK (Acrobat, Illustrator, InDesign), until I got to GraphicConverter (using Script Debugger), where I found the bundle id has a number, the same as the App version number (10)

So, I wrote code to overcome this, then found certain aspects of my GraphicConverter handler will no longer compile.

Trouble is, is it the Compiler, or GraphicConverter???

I’ve whipped of a request to Thorsten Lemke, but also thought I’d bounce the question of these two groups.

Below is a snippet I wrote to test the problem.

Any thoughts, particularly from the Authors of Script Debugger?

Any alternative methods? This is REALLY important, please!

Double clicking sigle entry Table not working.

Brian Christmas
 

G’day all

First, I fixed my lasr error bu methodically going over every deatil, and discovered a Text Field Cell in a Text Field has somehow been assigned a value, linked to an array controller, with ‘self’ as the Model Key Path.

Don’t know how it happened. I was very tired, but knowe I cannot sleep until I’ve solved any problems. I AM finding some unusual tthing being added/altered in Xcode 8 sometimes. Don’t know id it’s me, or a bug?

However, this problem is text book ‘Explored’ ebook code, that’s not working.

I built a Table, with Double Clicking access,  theTableOne's setDoubleAction:"displaySelection:" -- so double-click will call action handler


Worked fine with multiple entries, then I added a column, reduced the files to the only one containing 4 items of data, and now a Double Click on the single line, which is always hilited, refuses to work. Refuses to call the handler.


1. Would the fact the line is hilited in blue make a difference?

2. Is this a bug?

By "project" do you mean just the .xcodeproj, or the enclosing folder with the project file and source files?
Moving just the .xcodeproj will definitely break everything, because by default it uses relative paths to find all the other files.
Moving the entire project folder should be OK; if it breaks your build it's probably because you've ended up with absolute paths to some files, which are now broken links. Use the File Inspector pane to look at the paths for the files in your project.

Re: Dilemma after moving Project.

Sandor Szatmari
 

Did you try looking at the 'file attribute' inspector in the Utilities pane of Xcode to check how Xcode is referencing your XIB?  If you had an absolute path and moved your project Xcode wouldn't be able to find your XIB.  But I this should cause a build error not a runtime error.  Did you do a clean, then build?

Is it possible to triple click at mouse position???

Brian Christmas
 

G’day scripters

I have a situation where an app is cycling for receiving Barcode scans.

Also, two columns in a table with number formatters.

I have a button placed over the numbers, that  is active (invisibly) when the barcode scanning is active, and if a number is clicked above it, the button becomes hidden, and turns the scanning off.

However, it’s then cumbersome to have to triple click after a short while to select the number formatters.

I’d like to automate this, and triple click exactly where  the mouse was clicked above the number, but everything I’ve found on the net indicates I need a system addition to get the mouse position, and click there. What I want is something that can be added to and distributed with the App, and also works with Shane’s fordEvents.

Any suggestions, please??

Regards

Santa

PS, Shane, thanks for the tip on Cocoa variables. I WAS opening the report in TextEdit, but had utterly no idea of what I was looking at. I’ve listed each variable now (36), and coerced them individually, and everything works fine, thank you.

Have you tried looking at it in a text editor? It's basic trouble-shooting.

If you do, you'll see two instances of "ocid" and "optr", which suggest you're saving pointers to Cocoa objects. That means you're saving memory locations that could contain anything at all next time you read them. Both your files are nasty crashes waiting to happen.

The strangest thing is happening!!!

Brian Christmas
 

G’day folks

I’m trying to deal with a situation that is crashing one on my Apps, and don’t know what’s causing it.

My main app saves a list of variables on the desktop, and the printing app reads them, and deals with the emailed files, which are saved in a special folder. Only the folder reference is saved, no mention of the files inside it. The folder and the saved files are being created just fine.

The separate App that prints all the emailed images only crashes when I use an .indd file, and it’s working fine with every file type except when I use any InDesign file, then actually reading the file that transfers the variables, crashes the App cold turkey!

It CAN’T be the actual file format, but must be one of the written variables, but because it’s crashing, I can’t error trap it. Even logging doesn’t work.

I’m attaching a compressed folder of two.dat  files, one OK, the right one crashes.

Does anyone know of a way of interpreting the data to tell me which variable is at fault, please?

I’ve tried reading the .dat file with Applescript, but Script Editor crashes. I’ve been over and over my code since 8 am this morning, (it’s now 2:30 am the next morning), but can't locate what’s wrong, or why just a .indd file would do this. My 13,000+ lines of code is obviously wrong somewhere, but the handler compiling the variable file is not erroring,  so I’m up the proverbial creek without a paddle! I need to somehow know which variable is causing the crash, please.

The crash log is below, but I don’t know how to read the information. Does it help??? Googling has been useless. Alongside the arrowed line is this...

Regards

Santa

Subject: How do I 'Lock in' the appearance of a Finder window???

Is there ANY way of saving/opening that darn folder so nothing except the background image and the two icons display, please?

I’ve tried locking the folder, but nothing changes, except when it’s unlocked, a line appears in the window, that represents the old right edge of the saved folder, and a white right vertical bar the same width as the sidebar is ‘locked’ onto the right of the window.

There must be someway of doing it, as distributed Apps usually have a window with just the App icon, and backgound image, and an Application ‘alias’ icon.

You need to set the Finder view options when you open that folder, otherwise it’ll just use the default options on the user’s machine.

You already know how to do that in AppleScript. Just check the Finder dictionary for the properties you want to change. E.g:

tell application "Finder"
tell front window # or the window’s name, better
set toolbar visible to false
# set… # what ever other properties you need
end tell
end tell



Best

G’day again

I’ve researched this for 3 hours, and no one seems to address my problem.

I have a folder buried in my Application, that contains an image as a background, and two Applications.

EVERYTHING about the folder display is turned OFF, even the Toolbar.

However, when I save it and use a button to open it, the Toolbar reactivates, and the Sidebar also shows.

G’day Takaaki

Thankd for this tip.

I use the GUI heavily, and haden’t thought of localisation.

I usually use numbers instead of names, but have used names where newer versions of Apps change the number of a GU I item between version numbers.

I’ll have to change manu lines of code, but it will be worth it.

Perhaps you’ll now be able to answer the next question I’m asbout to post.

Regards

Santa

(4)Localization

GUI Based apps are localized in each language. The displayed messages are quite different if it is base on “English”. If your GUI Scripting based app indicates each GUI Element by titles, your app will not work on outside your language region (Au?).
