Bouncing Dock Icon (6 posts)

    I have the preference Bounce Icon in Dock turne d of. It works correctly when I manually transfer files. When I use AppleScript to transfer a file, if Fetch is in the background, then the icon bounces. I tried using AppleScript to turn the bouncing off, but that doesn't solve it either. Thoughts?

    Hi,

    Could you please give us some more information so we can investigate?

    Which version of Fetch are you using?

    And could you post your AppleScript here (feel free to replace host, user, path, and filenames with bogus information, we'd just like to see which commands you're using)?

    Thanks,

    I'm using Fetch 5.0.5

    Here is the AppleScript.
    If I leave out the last line - close transfer window 1, the dock icon does not bounce.

    tell application "Fetch"
    activate
    make new transfer window at beginning with properties {hostname:"0.0.0.0", username:"theUser", password:"thePassword"}
    open remote folder "ToSeparator"
    put into transfer window "0.0.0.0" item alias "path to item"
    close transfer window 1
    end tell

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Try changing "close transfer window 1" to "close transfer window 1 saving no" and let us know if that fixes the problem.

    Also, what version of Mac OS X are you using?

    Thanks,
