    I am trying to get Apple Script to execute this command when run.

    tell application "Spaces"
    press "Command . Option . Right Arrow"
    End Tell



    The middle line is off, how does the sentence need to read? Any help would be appreciated.

    tell application "System Events"
    keystroke "1" using control down
    end tell

    Change the Number "1" to any number between "1" the Maximum Number of Spaces to switch to them.]

    You also cannot control Spaces directly with AppleScript, so System Events all the way :D

    allbrokeup, Thanks


    Works like a charm!!

    I am going to create a batch of four of these for each space so that I can run them through Quicksilver. If you think there is a better way let me know.
