    I'm not certain that what you propose is possible, as a "when" statement is more or less an if used in a dynamic context - such as cron script.

    However you can do this a lot easier

    Make a new script using the following instead:

    tell application "application 1" to activate
    tell application "application 2" to activate
    name the script to say app 1 and use the same graphic, place it in the dock.

    so you'd get:
    tell application "Safari" to activate
    tell application "Dashboard" to activate
    Compile and save as an app. Paste the safari icon onto the new app and put it in your dock :)
