Abstract

You’ll often need to get users involved during the execution of your scripts, and AppleScript has a number of basic user interaction commands available. These commands are all part of the Standard Additions scripting addition’s User Interaction suite, and they allow your scripts to interact with the user in various ways; for example, you can display informational or warning messages to the user, prompt her to input some text, to select items from a list, or to choose files and folders for your script to process.
