Chapter 10. Scripting the Unscriptable > Activating Application Scriptability

10.1. Activating Application Scriptability

Mac OS X Panther offers a useful little utility called Stickies. This application lets you add virtual Post-It Notes to your workspace so you can keep notes and reminders within reach. With Stickies, you can add a note, specify its color, and add text and graphics. Unfortunately, the program doesn't include any intrinsic AppleScript support. While you can certainly script Stickies with the UI Scripting extensions discussed in the previous chapter, there are certain basic window and text functions that UI Scripting does not offer.

Figure 10-1. UI Scripting doesn't provide a direct way to close windows.
