[prMac.com] Quechee, Vermont - PFiddlesoft has announced the release of version 2.3.0 of UI Actions, bringing "universal attachability" to AppleScript. This version of UI Actions adds support for new accessibility features introduced by Apple in OS X 10.10 Yosemite as well as minor improvements and bug fixes.
UI Actions implements "universal attachability" for AppleScript. With UI Actions, you attach an AppleScript script to a native Mac OS X application. From then on, the script is triggered automatically every time the user performs the actions you specify in the target application. A UI action script can respond to all manner of user actions, such as opening or closing a window, selecting a menu item, editing a text field and many others.
UI Actions is universal. While Apple's Folder Actions and Digital Hub Actions are specialized tools that let your scripts respond when the user performs narrowly defined tasks, UI Actions goes much further. It allows any accessible user interface element in any application to trigger a script in response to any supported user action. UI Actions opens up whole new worlds of possibilities.
Download a free, full-featured 30-day trial version of UI Actions 2.3.0 now at the PFiddlesof website. UI Actions is a free upgrade for licensed users. New customers may purchase UI Actions for $35, with quantity discounts available.
UI Actions is based on the PFiddlesoft Frameworks, which include the PFAssistive and PFEventTaps Frameworks. The frameworks are written using Objective-C 2.0, and they support the Intel 64-bit architecture using reference counted memory management and ARC. Developers can now license the PFiddlesoft Frameworks for distribution or use with their own products that use Apple's Accessibility and Quartz Event Taps technologies. The frameworks may be licensed free of charge for personal use or for distribution or use with a free software product. A modest license fee is required to distribute or use the frameworks with a product for which payment is requested or required. Source code is available for a separate fee. Different terms apply to large or established commercial software developers. For more information, go to the Pfiddlesoft website.
