Applescript access to tasks in inbox Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
So I'm sure I'm not alone in entering a quick inbox item to remember to bring a book into work tomorrow. Listing the contexts in AppleScript I'm irritated to find that even if I have set the context on an inbox item, it does not appear in that context (nor in the GUI for that matter).

Does anyone know how I can list the tasks in the inbox using AppleScript? In return, when its done, I'll post the script to pop up reminders for items in a particular context at a certain time every day.

Thanks in advance

Answering my own question for posterity:

repeat with aTask in inbox tasks of default document

does not work, but

set in_box to inbox tasks of default document
repeat with aTask in in_box

And following up for completeness

while the GUI does not show inbox items in the contexts view, AppleScript does find them if you recurse down the contexts tree
