[AppleScript] Search in Devonthink

Post by sven.luetkemeier » Mon Jan 18, 2010 11:51 pm

just a quick applescript that runs a search in DEVONThink by opening a new "search window":

Code: Select all

-- Search in DevonThink via Launchbar
--
-- tested with Mac OS X 10.6.2, Lauchbar 5.0.2 and DEVONThink Pro Office 2.0pb8
--
-- requires GUI Scripting since DT Pro doesn't allow search windows to be scripted, 17.01.2010

on handle_string(mytext) -- Handler for Launchbar
   SearchDevon(mytext)
end handle_string

on SearchDevon(mytext)
   tell application id "com.devon-technologies.thinkpro2"
      activate
   end tell
   tell application id "com.apple.systemevents"
      tell process id "com.devon-technologies.thinkpro2"
         keystroke "F" using {shift down, command down}
         keystroke mytext
         delay 0.4
         keystroke return
      end tell
   end tell
end SearchDevon
