Hello, Im trying to create a script that will
automaticaly open "Address Book" and go to
a specified contact (person).

that way when i click on this script my address
book opens to the exact contact to whom i want
to view the contact information on.

so once this script is created i can make an
alias of it and put it in my special contact dock
(which fills the whole screen thanks to
"dragthing" :) ) and then everytime i click on
this script viola, contact info at a wave (to open
the dock) and a click of the mouse.

this is what i have so far...can you please let
me know why once i get "Address Book" to
open, i cant get it to "Find" the person.

tell application "Address Book" to activate
tell application "Address Book" to find = "Cindy"


thanks.

if you have address book open and you drag
a contact onto your desktop. then click that
contanct on your deskstop you will see that
it CREATES A NEW contact in the address
book. so if you had "John" in your address
book dragged it to your desktop then clicked
on the one on your desktop you will now have
TWO "Johns" in your address book.

so you cant make aliases from the contacts
that are in address book.

looks like your not getting much help yet, and i'm sorry to say that i won't be able to help either...

although you could check out the section on Apple's site. there are tutorials for learning applescript and lots of applescript resources.

good luck
