SUMMARY: PreFab Software releases UI Actions 1.2.1, a minor update to UI
Actions, bringing “universal attachability” to AppleScript. Download it at
NORTH ANDOVER, Massachusetts — PreFab Software, Inc. and Bill Cheeseman
today announced the release of version 1.2.1 of PreFab UI Actions. UI
Actions is a Universal Binary that runs natively both on Power PC Macintosh
computers and the new Intel Macs.
UI Actions 1.2.1 fixes a bug introduced in UI Actions 1.2 where UI Actions
Setup crashed if a script was attached to a target application and the
target application subsequently quit, or if UI Actions Setup was relaunched
and the target application was no longer running. UI Actions Setup now once
again correctly lists target applications that are not running in orange
UI Actions implements “universal attachability” for AppleScript. With UI
Actions, you attach an AppleScript script to a native Mac OS X application.
From then on, the script will be triggered automatically every time the
user performs the actions you specify in the target application. A UI
Action script can respond to all manner of user actions, such as opening or
closing a window, selecting a menu item, editing a text field and many
PreFab UI Actions is universal. While Apple’s Folder Actions and Digital
Hub Actions are specialized tools that let your scripts respond when the
user performs narrowly defined tasks, UI Actions goes much further. It
allows any accessible user interface element in any application to trigger
a script in response to any supported user action. UI Actions opens up
whole new worlds of possibilities.
