OmniOutliner: Fastest way to set data in rows, columns or blocks? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
Any tips on the "fastest" way to put values into a document? I currently seem to have to loop through and insert values into one cell at a time like so:

(assume a 5 column document--three added to default)

tell application "OmniOutliner" to tell document 1
set theNewRow to make new row at end
repeat with i from 2 to 5
set the value of cell i of theNewRow to "foobar" & i
end repeat
end tell

My understanding is that you can speed things up by reducing the number of Apple Events so I figure that:

tell application "OmniOutliner" to tell document 1
set theNewRow to make new row at end
set the value of every cell of theNewRow to "foobar"
end tell

is probably faster, but I would also like to see a way to set each cell in the row (or column, or block) to a different value. Is there a way to do this? I'm using oo3.

Thanks in advance,
