Auto Quit (6 posts)

    It would be nice if there was an option, at least when using a droplet, to have Fetch quit after the upload is complete.

    Thanks for that suggestion. If you like you can make your own droplet that will quit Fetch after uploading. For a starting point, download the Fetch Example Scripts from http://fetchsoftworks.com/downloads.html and take a look at the DropUpload example. You could add a "quit" command to have it quit Fetch after uploading.

    Please let me know if that does not work for you.

    Thanks,

    I tried to do it by inserting an sftp address into the sample script and am getting an error.

    'Can't get class cFHD"

    Here is the script:

    property gDesturl : ""

    on specify_destination()
    set default_url to "<sftp://jehrler:@123.123.123.123:1234/Documents/Program%20Storage/>"

    set dialog_reply to display dialog "Enter the destination URL for uploads in this format:" & return & return & " <ftp://user:@host/path/>" & return & return & "[Use the Copy URL command in Fetch to copy the current URL]" default answer default_url
    if button returned of dialog_reply = "OK" then
    set gDesturl to text returned of dialog_reply
    end if
    end specify_destination

    on open doc
    if gDesturl = "" then
    specify_destination()
    end if
    if gDesturl ≠ "" then
    with timeout of 60000 seconds
    tell application "Fetch"
    put into «class cFHD» gDesturl item doc
    quit
    end tell
    end timeout
    end if
    end open

    specify_destination()

    I would make sure that Fetch is running when you launch Script Editor, so Script Editor can find Fetch's scripting dictionary. If you still see the error, replace the «class cFHD» with url, i.e.:

    put into url gDesturl item doc

    Thanks,

    Keeping Fetch open didn't seem to help so...

    I just went with a simple script adding your last hint and it works great.

    Thanks.

    on open doc
    tell application "Fetch"
    put into url "sftp://jehrler:@123.123.123.123:1234/Documents/Program%20Storage/" item doc
    quit
    end tell
    end open
