I am using “Remote Buddy”. It lets me run applescript code, which apparently runs within RB’s context, i.e. I do not have to use ´
tell app "Remote Buddy" to use its own classes and such.
Now, the problem is that I want to invoke the global
open location function, but its code
<<GURLGURL>> gets translated into the “Get URL” handler that RB itself offers.
How do I write my code so that it accesses the GURL handler on the global scope instead?
You could always try a different tack:
use AppleScript version "2.4" -- Yosemite (10.10) or later
use framework "Foundation"
use framework "AppKit"
use scripting additions
set theURLString to "http://forum.latenightsw.com/t/escape-the-app-context-to-call-a-global-function/693/1"
current application's NSWorkspace's sharedWorkspace()'s openURL:(current application's |NSURL|'s URLWithString:theURLString)
Didn’t think of using the ObjC Bridge. Works, but cumbersome.
So, that probably means that AppleScript has no language feature for accessing the parent scope. (such as “super of …”)
A similar situation with PowerMail can be got round by telling any application which doesn’t implement a command using that code to perform it.
tell application "System Events" to open location "http://macscripter.net"
open location, by the way, is in the StandardAdditions.
