AppleScript accepts the terms middle and some as well. Also note that the additional terms before and after were used to further define the target window’s location. Finder Window index References The value of the index property can be expressed using any of the previous methods. All are valid and can be used freely and interchangeably. Here’s a summary of the ways a Finder window can be referenced: By name: Finder window "Documents" By numeric index: Finder window 1 By descriptive index: the first Finder window the second Finder window the fifth Finder window the 1st Finder window the 23rd Finder window By relative position: the front Finder window the middle Finder window the back Finder window the last Finder window Randomly: some Finder window 17 18 The First Step Changing a Finder Window’s index Value So far we’ve examined the name and index properties by using them to refer to specific Finder windows.
Like the toolbar visible property, this property also has a value that is a Boolean, in other words, true or false. 18. 19. 19 A Finder window without a toolbar but displaying a status bar below the title bar. 14, the Finder window now displays a status bar beneath the title bar. This status bar can only be made visible when the window’s toolbar is not showing. 20. 4 (Tiger) is the sidebar width property. The value of this property is an integer, indicating the width of the sidebar in pixels. Not only can you read it, but you can set it.
Together, these two numbers describe the specific point on the screen where the top left of the window begins. Let’s change the value of the position property of the front Finder window to move the window near the top left of the screen. 27. 27 The front Finder window has been moved so that its top-left corner is now 94 pixels from the left side of the Desktop and 134 pixels from the top of the Desktop. 28. 29. 29 Vertical Offset Exception Unlike most other scriptable applications that use the distance from the top of the screen to the top of a window to determine its vertical position, the Finder uses the distance from the top of the screen to just below the title bar of the window, thus adding the height of the title bar, an extra 22 pixels, to the measurement.
