Extracting title and URL Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I prefer to keep bookmarks in a database. I need to build an AppleScript that will extract the title and URL from the current page, and copy them to the clipboard as a single text string with the URL in brackets, like this:

The Omni Group <http://www.omnigroup.com/>

I don't know enough about AppleScript to make this happen. Can someone help?

Thanks,
dp
 
I'm not great at AppleScript, I've only wrote one for VisualHub thus far, but this does what you want:

tell application "OmniWeb"
set bookInfo to GetWindowInfo
set the clipboard to item 2 of bookInfo & " <" & item 1 of bookInfo & ">"
end tell

That got it. Thanks, Vician.
