    Applescript?

    Is there a way to have jxm open at when I open line in on my computer. I know I could probably use automater but I just want to to see if there was a better way. Also, I would like to some how be able to push the pass thru button on line in and at the same time it would turn the power on in jxm. Can I write a simple applescript to do this, and how would I get it to run everytime I pushed the pass thru button. Or maybe create a separate button that would before both actions, and even open the programs if they r not already.

    You can script the user interface. You have to figure out the name of the control. There is an inspector app you can use on the apple developers web site.

    I thought JXM has an error in it that keeps it from working right -it hasn't been updated in quite awhile?

    jxm seems to be getting updated...macxm is not. People were having problems with it working in leopard and the developer fixed it temporarily and said there would be a more permanent fix in the next version. Thanks for the reply...i'll take a look.

    ok i have a working script now...is there a way I can make it a button or something? I guess i could just save it as an application and run it...i just figured it would be easier like if i had a call to be able to push a button. My next thing is trying to make jxm more car friendly as far as for changing stations etc...any suggestions?

    You can have applescript pop up a button for you to do stuff. You can also build an Applescript application in XCode and have your own interface that can control JXM. I did something similar with a friend awhile back.
