Playing with fmp4 again today.. got even worse.. no i'm messing with
the dreaded applescript.. trying to learn just enough applescript to
get pictures of items into my "Items" data base without having to mess
my theory was that i could setup a little script to check if the field
for the picture was empty.. then if the field was empty, the fm script
would run an applescript to see if the correct picture was on the drive
and get it.. of course i would only want to run this when the container
field is empty..
so before i got much into things i tried to test for an empty field..
it seemed to work, except that when the import does not work right, i
get this "JPEG error #53" displayed in the container.. sadly, it is
a picture.. i can drop it on the desktop, and there is a little pict
clipping that is a "picture" of the text "JPEG error #53".. so i need
a way to test for this.. the field is not empty, and i can't figure
out how to tell if this error picture is in the field, or the picture
i wanted is in there..
the directory i was importing from, is my desktop pictures directory
so i'm sure the pictures are ok.. well at least ok, in terms of the
desktop, photoshop, and jpegview all have no problems dealing with
any ideas?? i still have plenty to do, just trying to figure out how
to get applescript to do things, so figured i would ask this question
