What’s Wrong With AppleScript

May 18th, 2005 | Tags:

This simple script gives away one of the major problems with AppleScript: sometimes it just doesn’t work. This script gives no errors, but does not set the subject of the message:

tell application "Mail"
set theMsg to item 1 of (the selection as list)
set subject of theMsg to "Hello"
set theSubject to subject of theMsg
end tell


While this script returns a helpful NSInternalScriptError from Mail:

tell application "Mail"
set theMsg to item 1 of (the selection as list)
set theContent to content of theMsg
set content of theMsg to theContent
end tell
