PFiddlesoft has released version 2.0.0 of UI Actions, bringing “universal attachability” to AppleScript. The new version is Universal Binary and runs on Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6.
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 others.
UI Actions 2.0.0 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 allows any accessible user interface element in any application to trigger a script in response to any supported user action.
You can download a full-featured 30-day trial version of UI Actions 2.0.0 at pfiddlesoft.com/uiactions . It’s a free upgrade for licensed users. New customers may purchase UI Actions 2.0.0 for US$35, with quantity discounts available.
