Applescript Snippet - Growl as error handler notifier

Postby Hypercube » Tue Dec 21, 2004 2:47 am

Was fiddling a week or so back, thought this might be of use to people...

Code: Select all

set myHandlerDetails4ErrorStr to "testGrowlErrorHandler"
set myAppName to name of me
   set myThing to 100 / 0
on error m number n
      tell application "System Events"
         set myGrowl to "GrowlHelperApp" as string
         set GrowlExists to exists application process myGrowl
      end tell
      if GrowlExists then
         using terms from application "GrowlHelperApp"
            tell application "GrowlHelperApp"
               notify with title ("Error #" & n) as string description ({"\"", m, "\"", return, "In: ", myHandlerDetails4ErrorStr} as string) icon of application myAppName
            end tell
         end using terms from
         -- display dialog, or other notification method
         -- such as AppleScript's 'log' command if in a script editor
      end if
   on error m number n
      display dialog ({"error when trying to advise of error using growl; \"", m,"\"", return, n as string} as string)
   end try
end try

Have Fun
Hug the ones you love, now.
