Hi all
I've been trying to solve a problem.
I'm trying to write an Applescript that does the following, I have spent numerous hours trying to get it work but still not going anywhere near. The algorithm is actually simple, as below:
if (window whose title contains text "[my google email address]") does not exist
          create a new Chrome window with address "https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0"
          put the window in presentation mode
          if (window whose title contains text "[my google email address]") exists but does not have focus, or hidden
          then bring focus to the window
          else hide the window
          end if
end if
Could any one help to suggest what code would work? Thanks heaps
MacBook Air, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)
