    If there is anyone out there that has an expertise on scripting, your help would be great. I'm trying to make a slider feature for the screen brightness for my Powerbook using Salling Clicker. When I try to save the script I get a syntax error: Expected line ending, but found identifier.

    This is the actual script, if I am missing something or doing something wrong please let me know.



    property old_brightness : 0.5
    property new_brightness : 0.5

    tell application "SEC Helper"
    try
    set old_brightness to screen brightness
    enter slider mode title "Screen Brightness" steps 10 value screen brightness * 10
    end tell

    on value_was_changed(passed_value)
    tell application "SEC Helper"
    set new_brightness to passed_value / 100
    set screen brightness to new_brightness
    show screen message "Screen Brightness" percentage value passed_value / 100
    end tell
    end value_was_changed

    on affirmative_slider_response()
    end affirmative_slider_response

    on negative_slider_response()
    tell application "SEC Helper"
    set screen brightness to old_brightness
    end tell
    end negative_slider_response



    Your help is greatly appreciated. Have a great day.
