Could you explain how to, or what the uses are with the new AppleScript & using it with LaunchBar or Quicksilver?

For example if I have a HoudahSpot template called "Text Documents" could I somehow initiate a search of the "Text Documents" template from LaunchBar?

I don't know AppleScript but I'm keen to try this out

Hi!

Please check the how-to section of the built-in Help.

For LaunchBar integration, I would recommend the use of the custom URL scheme over AppleScript.

The URL scheme expects a template name. AppleScript needs an actual file.

Thanks, I've tried adding a custom URL but am having trouble how/where to place the name exactly.

If the template is called Document Search how would this fit in the URL?
(I've tried various ways (obviously replacing 'filename'), with & without quotes but can't get it right).

hhspot://blitzSearch?searchString=*&filenameFlag=YES&contentFlag=YES&commentsFlag=YES



Also could you give a quick example of how (or what purpose) you'd use the AppleScript with files
(Aan example of a situation where you'd use it).

Interesting use of the URL.

This also allows using houdahspot as a WebSearch in Butler.

There the entry should be:

Prefix: hhspot://blitzSearch?searchString=
Suffix: &filenameFlag=YES&contentFlag=YES&commentsFlag=YES

This is very slick.

Probably could add this to you online help.

Hi!

The correct URL would be:

hhspot://blitzSearch?searchString=*&filenameFlag=YES&contentFlag=YES&commentsFlag=YES&templateName=Document%20Search.hspot

Unfortunately, there is a bug in HoudahSpot 2.2 where the URL cannot deal with non-alphanumeric characters. Until the release of HoudahSpot 2.2.1, you will be limited to template names with no spaces or special characters.

In HoudahSpot 2.2.1 the ".hspot" extension will also become optional.

Thanks for that.

This is really cool now you can search HoudahSpot templates from LaunchBar!
Looking forward to the 2.2.1 version so I can set up quite a few
