Re: osx open url vs osascript FYI

2017-03-13 Thread Keisuke Miyako via 4D_Tech
for opening documents

plugin
https://github.com/miyako/4d-plugin-shell-execute

component (internally LAUNCH EXTERNAL PROCESS)
https://github.com/miyako/4d-component-sublaunch

in particular, the escaping of paths is quite robust,
not just double-quoting the whole string.

but going back to the original post,
I wonder why OPEN URL could not open "some" files.

perhaps the HTML in question was downloaded,
and GateKeeper or some other mechanism is blocking the operation?

would

xattr -c {drop the file here}

in terminal solve the issue?

This works for me launching(all sorts of) documents..(OSX there is a another 
bit bit i have for windows)

$_t_DocumentPath:=<—full path to document
If (Test path name($_T_DocumentPath)=Is a document)
$_t_PosixPath:=Convert path system to POSIX($_t_DocumentPath)

$_t_FilePath:=$_t_char+$_t_PosixPath+$_t_Char
$_t_applicationName:=UTIL_GetDocApps ($_t_DocumentType;True)  //do some stuff 
to check what app they want(not entirely necessary  This will only ask once!-so 
could be launching an HTML doc with preferred browser for example

If ($_t_applicationName#"")
  //now we must checkt the applicaiton exist
$_t_ApplicationPath:=System folder(Applications or program files)

If (Not(Test path name($_t_ApplicationPath+$_t_applicationName)=Is a document))
  //i am not faffing about looking for apps installed somewhere else..
LAUNCH EXTERNAL PROCESS("open "+Char(34)+$_t_PosixPath+Char(34))

Else 
LAUNCH EXTERNAL PROCESS("open -a "+Char(34)+$_t_applicationName+Char(34)+" 
"+Char(34)+$_t_FilePath+Char(34))

End if 

Else 
LAUNCH EXTERNAL PROCESS("open "+Char(34)+$_t_PosixPath+Char(34))

End if

Have you tried using ".html" instead of ".htm"?
What happens if you doubleclick your .htm-document in the finder?

Applescript is a good option if you need to do something complicated. If you 
just want to open an application or document (or application with a document), 
Mac OS provides a great command line utility called "open". Type "man open" in 
Terminal to see the options. All you need to do is convert your path to posix 
format and put it in double quotes in case it contains spaces.

This works great for doing things like opening HTML documents with Excel (use 
-b com.microsoft.Excel).

Tim,

Good catch!

I copied the wrong code example.

It should be “open”.  (SORRY)

> $script_t:="tell application \"Finder\""+$LF
> $script_t:=$script_t+"open\""+$Path_Doc_t+"\" as alias"+$LF
> $script_t:=$script_t+"end tell"+$LF

I am confused by this post. Your first statement is you are trying to OPEN an 
.htm document on macOS. But your AppleScript code will not open the document, 
it PRINTs it.
