Re: Using Applescript to find an existing yojimbo note...

2008-01-19 Thread Michael Heinz
If it matters, I got the same error as Alan, but I chose to wrap it  
with the try/on error/end try block that I was already using.

In my testing here, this causes an error (in Script Debugger) when  
no

such item exists.


Just for reference, I tested my version with Yojimbo 1.5 on Mac OS X
10.4.11 using Apple's Script Editor 2.1.1 (AppleScript 1.10.7), and  
no

error occurs when an item named by mytitle does not exist. Perhaps it
is a Script Debugger issue?


I should have offered similar clues -- sorry.

I'm using Yojimbo 1.5 on Mac OS X 10.5.1. I get the same error in  
Script Editor 2.2 (Applescript 2.0) as I do in Script Debugger 4.0.8.


Yojimbo got an error: Can’t get note item 1 whose name = Friday,  
January 18, 2008. Invalid index.


Let's blame Apple, shall we? ;-)


Whatever works!


That's my motto!

In my testing here, this causes an error (in Script Debugger) when no

note as follows:


-- find existing note
set resultList to get (every note item whose name is mytitle)

if (count of resultList) is 0 then
-- create a new note
set mynote to (make new note item with properties ¬
			{name:mytitle, contents:imported on   mytitle}) -- N.B. changed  
'date' to 'mytitle'

add tags mytags to mynote
else
set mynote to first item of resultList

It so happens I just installed Leopard this evening, and indeed I get
the same error now too. Probably just a consequence of the changes to
AppleScript; I didn't realize so much syntax was influenced. (I
foresee a long weekend of... adapting to these improvements.) Anyway,
thanks for your corrections.

Using Applescript to find an existing yojimbo note...

2008-01-18 Thread Michael Heinz

Hey,

I'd like to use Yojimbo to keep a daily work diary. To make it easier,  
I'd like to set up an applescript that will create the title of the  
diary entry (based on today's date) and either (a) find the entry if  
it already exists or (b) create a new entry if it does not.


I've figured out how to create the new entry, but I can't figure out  
how to search Yojimbo to see if it already exists. In addition, I'm  
not sure how to have Yojimbo select the diary entry and bring it to  
the front. Here's what I have:


tell application Yojimbo
set mytags to {QLogic, Diary}
set mytitle to date string of (current date)
try
-- find existing note
set mynote to ???
on error
-- create a new note
set mynote to (make new note item with properties ¬
{name:mytitle, contents:imported on   date})

add tags mytags to mynote
end try
activate
-- how do I bring the note to the front?
end tell

Thanks for any help you can give!

Re: Using Applescript to find an existing yojimbo note...

2008-01-18 Thread Jim DeVona
How's this?

tell application Yojimbo
set mytags to {QLogic, Diary}
set mytitle to date string of (current date)

-- find existing note
set mynote to first note item whose name is mytitle

if mynote is missing value then
-- create a new note
set mynote to (make new note item with properties ¬
{name:mytitle, contents:imported on   date})
add tags mytags to mynote
end if

activate
open location x-yojimbo-item://  (get id of mynote)
end tell

I don't know of a scriptable way to reveal items in the main window (I
wish there was - it'd be useful) so the open location hack shows the
item in a separate window.

Hope this helps,
Jim
