I am trying to develop an application based upon a command.' (Applescript) The command has to be initialized first, so if i type in terminal: /cmd it will open the terminal program and display this: Code: You are now using application, please select your option, 1, 2, or 3. [Default 2] After the application has started, I can tell it what I want to do. What I cant do is this: /cmd option 2 I cannot pass the parameters after the command. I need a way to initialize the command, and then run a command inside of the command I called. Here is my code: Code: on clicked theObject do shell script "/cmd" display dialog "Command Started" end clicked Thanks for the help.
