hi everyone,

ive had some decent experience with minor automation, but now im trying to get a little more serious.

1. i'm wondering if its possible to write a script that could open up an application, folder, or document such that the header bar of the window opens just under my mouse.

so the key would be to read where the mouse is located and move the said window there.

2. when writing scripts for specific applications, where do you find out what the applications specific names to functions calls, and actions?

any leads would be greatly appreciated?

thanks!

also,

i am using quicksilver, which can open up and perform script actions for individual applications. so i already have the ability to open up applications using keyboard shortcuts or mouse gestures with quicksilver. all that remains is doing so where the cursor is.

ideally, i would like to not have to rely on quicksilver, and just be able to run the script at the system level.
