Missing link with Flash

I mentioned the possible use of a Flash UI for AppleScript a while ago. Peter Bunn - developer of Missing Link has asked me to demonstrate how a link in a Flash movie could open a Mac file, application or folder using his AppleScript application. So I put together a basic demo (since removed).

Click on the button and Flash will open whatever URL you put in the field – if you happen to have Missing Link installed and you use the Open:/ protocol – a valid path will open that particular directory or file on you Mac.

Without real two way communication between the Flash movie and the system I can’t see it having ground breaking significance. Regardless – it works.

Further thoughts

My interesting in Flash has waned somewhat over the years. Removed the links to the now misplaced files. Not anticipating they will be missed.
