Applescript Snippet Request: Get Tasks for Context Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I am writing an Applescript where I want to iterate thru all of the tasks within a given context.

For example:

- get all tasks with a context of "Waiting"...
--- then for each task....
---- do something

If anyone has a code snippet that could get me started I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!

Hope this makes sense:

tell application "OmniFocus"
	set strContextName to "Waiting"
	tell front document
		set lstMatches to complete strContextName as context
		if length of lstMatches > 0 then
			set recMatch to item 1 of lstMatches
			set strID to id of recMatch
			set oContext to context id strID
			set lstAllTasks to tasks of oContext
			set lstAvailable to available tasks of oContext
			set lstRemaining to remaining tasks of oContext
			display dialog "Context: " & strContextName & " not found."
		end if
	end tell
end tell

Thank you! That worked perfectly!
