    applescript - path to file

    m8r-vrpa5v

      Hi there,

       

      I was making a simple applescript... but I'm a Windows user, and I'm using a Mac environment to code some stuff to a friend and I probably am stepping onto some minor details from OSX.

       

      Here's my question... I have these files:

      DirStructure.gif

      So.... I have on the same folder:

      • Teste (the AppleScript file)
      • and teste.jsx (the ExtendScript file to execute some functions on InDesign).

       

      What I was trying to do on the AS file was as simple as:

       

      set theFileScript to "teste.jsx" as alias
      
      tell application "Adobe InDesign CC 2014"
           do script theFileScript language javascript
      end tell
      

       

      But when I run it I get: "File teste.jsx wasn't found".

       

      I already looked around and I got the idea that if I wanted a relative path (that's what we call it in Windows) to a file in the same directory we just needed to put the name of the file (just like in Windows).

      But from this test and some others I did I don't think that's true, how may I solve this?

       

       

      Many thanks for the help!
