How Do I Record a Script, and View the Script?
It is pretty straightforward how to start and stop a script recording.
But where is the script recorded? Where is the resultant script?
When I stop the record, it offers no help.
When I search the SD6 Help system, it also offers no help on where to find the results:
If a scriptable application is also recordable, it translates user actions into AppleScript code. This is effectively the same AppleScript code that would be used to perform those same actions programmatically. Common examples (perhaps the only examples) of recordable applications are BBEdit and the Finder.
To start recording user actions:
Choose Script > Record and switch to the recordable application. (You can also add a Record button to the script window toolbar; in that case, you can click the Record button to start recording.)
Or, if you’re already in the recordable application, choose Record from Script Debugger’s Dock menu.
Once you’ve started recording user actions, perform actions directly in the recordable application. Script Debugger will record the AppleScript equivalent of each action. When you’re done recording:
Switch to Script Debugger and choose Script > Stop (or click the Record button in the toolbar again).
Or, choose Stop from Script Debugger’s Dock menu.
