OmniFocus: Querying tasks in Applescript gives odd results Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
You can query Omnifocus tasks to collect subsets with shared property values.

The results yielded are, however, imperfect. Querying by note content partially works but querying by due date seems to yield wholly incorrect results. Has anyone else tried this ?

Some sample test code:

Code:
tell application "OmniFocus"
	tell window 1
		set selected view mode identifier to "project"
		set focus to {}
		select library of sidebar
		
		tell content
			set refLeaves to a reference to leaves
			-- get total count of tasks
			set intTotal to count of refLeaves
			
			-- THIS QUERY ALMOST WORKS
			set lstSubSet to refLeaves where ((class of value) = task) and (note of value ≠ "")
			set intHasNote to count of lstSubSet
			
			set lstSubSet to refLeaves where ((class of value) = task) and (note of value = "")
			set intNoNote to count of lstSubSet
			
			set intDiscrepancy to intTotal - (intHasNote + intNoNote)
			display dialog "Gap: " & intDiscrepancy as string
			
			
			-- QUERYING ON DATES GIVES COMPLETELY INCORRECT RESULTS
			set lstSubSet to refLeaves where ((class of value) = task) and ((due date of value) is (current date))
			set intToday to count of lstSubSet
			
			set lstSubSet to refLeaves where ((class of value) = task) and ((due date of value) > (current date))
			set intAfterToday to count of lstSubSet
			
			set lstSubSet to refLeaves where ((class of value) = task) and ((due date of value) < (current date))
			set intB4Today to count of lstSubSet
			
			
			set intSecndDiscrepancy to intTotal - (intToday + intAfterToday + intB4Today)
			display dialog "Second Gap: " & intSecndDiscrepancy as string
			
			-- ODDEST RESULT -- Small positive number - hard to explain
			set lstSubSet to refLeaves where ((due date of value) ≠ (current date))
			set intOdd to count of lstSubSet -- Small positive number - hard to explain
			display dialog "Odd value for tasks with due date NOT today: " & intOdd as string
		end tell
	end tell
end tell
