what is the fastest way to search tasks based on custom data in AppleScript Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
For some of my tasks I have a custom data field "tracid" set. In AppleScript I need to find the task where the tracid is set to a particular value.

Currently I am just iterating over the list of tasks until I find the one I want. Is there any faster way to do this?

-- Finds a Task
--   _id : tracid of task
on findTask(_id)
	tell application "OmniPlan"
		tell first document
			repeat with t in tasks
				set customData to get custom data of t
				if customData is not {} then
					if (tracid of customData = _id) then
						return t
					end if
				end if
			end repeat
			return false
		end tell
	end tell
end findTask
