Hi SpiralOcean,
Applescript comes to your rescue.

This small script is for you:

Code: Select all

set userInput to display dialog "What Status?" default answer "" with icon note
set msg to text returned of userInput
tell application "iChat"
   set status message to msg
end tell

on handle_string(input)
   tell application "iChat"
      set status message to input
   end tell
end handle_string

-idea from StudioLog

Index it in LaunchBar and you're done ;-)

If you launch it with enter it will prompt you to enter your status. Alternatively you can enter your status message via spacebar directly in LaunchBar and then press enter.

I hope that helped you and I didn't get anything wrong :-)
