Code: Select all
-- This simple script uses LaunchBar to generate a reminder after a given number of minutes. It takes input from LaunchBar in the format "<min>-<message>", where <min> is the number of minutes to delay and <msg> is the notification to be displayed when the timer expires. The two values are separated with a single hyphen character. Example: "5-order pizza". Written by Dennis Rande, 2008-04-08.
if input is not "" then
open location "x-launchbar:hide"
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to "-"
set interval to first text item of input
set msg to last text item of input
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to ""
delay (interval * 60)
open location ("x-launchbar:large-type?string=" & msg)

ludwigschubert wrote:Really, I found my script to be quite unusable and I would imagine it's the same with Dennis' since it's basically the same code. Dennis, please don't see this as an affront, I just think that there has to be a better way that allows LaunchBar to be used while a message is waiting. The "x-launchbar:hide" call solves the problem of LaunchBar being visible while waiting, but not that of using LaunchBar.

Running scripts in background
By default, LaunchBar runs AppleScripts in foreground, i.e. you cannot perform any further action in LaunchBar until the script has finished executing.
You can optionally run specific scripts in background by opening them with Shift-Return.
