    macrumors newbie

    I am a new user to Mac and I need help.
    The error is:
    Can’t get button returned.
    I am trying to prank my friend with this script that I will save as an application.

    display dialog "VIRUS! VIRUS!" buttons {"Destroy it"} default button 1
    if button returned is "Destroy it" then
    	tell application "Finder" to sleep
    	display dialog "You cannot destroy me" buttons {"Yes I can"}
    else if button returned is "Yes I can" then
    	tell application "System Preferences" to activate
    end if
    Any help is appreciated

    First step is to post your code. People cant help you unless they see the code that is not working.

    Try this :

    if button returned of the result = "Destroy it" then

    set theResult to button returned of (display dialog "VIRUS! VIRUS!" buttons {"Destroy it"} default button 1)
    if theResult is "Destroy it" then
    Ask yourself what will happen then. You need to work on your logic.
