Hello,

I need to capture whether a dialog gave up or not.


tell application "Finder"
display dialog "Do you want to do something?" giving up after 10
if <did give up after 10> then
do one thing
else
do another thing
end if
end
tell

Thanks!

The result of display dialog is a record
, with properties depending on the parameters used, so you can just query the desired value - for example:

Code:
set dialogResult to (display dialog "Do you want to do something?" giving up after 10)
if gave up of dialogResult then
    log "I gave up"
else
    log button returned of dialogResult
end if

Note that display dialog is a part of StandardAdditions, so you do not need to use the Finder.
