Re: Applescript to get modified date of file selected in Yojimbo

2008-01-15 Thread Christopher Dare
Thanks Steve.

It works. BUT it doesn't work if I try and re-name an item. When I click on
an item and select rename (from the Ctrl+click menu) the script doesn't
work.

It only works if I am just selecting the item.

Any ideas?

What I am trying to do is get the modified date of the item and be able to
rename the item by appending the modified date to the end of the filename
(but before the file extension). I was trying to do it using a TypeIt4Me
abbreviation - .e.g so that every time I typed ytag the item's modified
date would be returned when I am renaming it.

I think you're mixing too many tools and gestures into the 
process. And to repeat myself: There are no _files_ in Yojimbo.


However, if you want to rename an item using the date:

on FormatDate(modDate)
set dateString to ¬
(year of (modDate))  -  ¬
(text -2 thru -1 of (0  (month of (modDate) as 
number)))  -  ¬
(text -2 thru -1 of (0  (day of (modDate) as 
number))) ¬

as string
return dateString
end FormatDate

tell application Yojimbo
set selectedItem to selection
set itemTitle to name of item 1 of selectedItem
set modDate to modification date of item 1 of selectedItem
set prettyDate to my FormatDate(modDate)
set itemTitle to itemTitle  space  prettyDate

set name of item 1 of selectedItem to itemTitle
end tell

I want an Applescript that will grab the modified date of a file selected in
Yojimbo.


Keep in mind that there aren't files in Yojimbo. If you want 
to get the modification date of an item in Yojimbo:


tell application Yojimbo
set selectedItem to selection
set modDate to modification date of item 1 of selectedItem
end tell
