Someone please help me here and show me how to get this to work. I've checked examples on returning values from functions with this AppleScript, but something I am missing here.
I'm trying to get the function, strTest(), to pass a string that will then be printed to the BBEdit editor. If I were to replace the variable with a static string, that works. But this isn't working at all. I'm getting: "The variable theText is not defined."
Does anybody see what's going on?
on strTest() set returntest to "this is a test" return returntest end strTest tell application "BBEdit" set theText to strTest() tell window 1 set insertionP to get selection set text of insertionP to (theText & (text of insertionP)) end tell end tell
