Click “ADD YOUR APP” and implement commands.

For example if You use Impress.js You can emulate arrows on Your keyboard for implement previous and next command.

tell application "System Events" to key code 124

  1. I am failing when trying to control Google Chrome to move to next and previous tabs using the code suggested at http://en.blog.guylhem.net/post/9835498027/google-chrome-next-tab-in-applescript

    Next tab

    tell application ”Google Chrome”
    set maxIndex to count tabs of (first window)
    set currentIndex to active tab index of (first window)
    set proposedIndex to currentIndex + 1
    if proposedIndex maxIndex then set proposedIndex to 1
    set (active tab index of (first window)) to proposedIndex
    end tell

    Previous tab

    tell application ”Google Chrome”
    set maxIndex to count tabs of (first window)
    set currentIndex to active tab index of (first window)
    set proposedIndex to currentIndex - 1
    if proposedIndex maxIndex then set proposedIndex to 1
    set (active tab index of (first window)) to proposedIndex
    end tell

    Any ideas?

    • Hi Tiago,
      instead of using specific for Chrome instructions, you can call keyboard shortcuts.

      Previous tab

      tell app ”Chrome” to activate
      tell app ”System Events” to key code 123 using {option down, command down}

      Next tab

      tell app ”Chrome” to activate
      tell app ”System Events” to key code 124 using {option down, command down}

  5. Nothing works except the volume. I tried with:

    tell application “Shiny Groove” to play
    tell application “Shiny Groove” to key code 119
    tell application “Shiny Groove” to key code 119 end tell
    tell application “System Events” to key code 119

    *119,118, 120, 123…

    Any solution?

  10. Hey. Really enjoy your app, very nice design.
    I’m using wimp wich is an alternative to spotify. I’m struggling to get the commands working. Any tips, or “how to” on this. I have keyboard shortcuts for wimp on my MBP, is it possible to link these to the commands in dotremote app. Btw. My MBP has OSX 10.9.2.

  13. I’ve found the EyeTV Apple Script Dictionary. Here’s a cleaner version using the native calls. Enjoy!:

    #EyeTV Controls

    #Play/Pause will start eyetv if it isn’t running
    tell application “EyeTV” to activate
    tell application “EyeTV” to playpause

    #Skip Forward
    tell application “EyeTV” to skip forward
    #Skip Backward
    tell application “EyeTV” to skip backward

    #Fast Forward
    tell application “EyeTV” to fast forward
    #Fast Backward
    tell application “EyeTV” to fast backward

    #Record (re-purposed info button)
    tell application “EyeTV” to start recording

    #TODO: Need to add channel controls to UI
    #Channel Up
    tell application “EyeTV” to channel_up
    #Channel Down
    tell application “EyeTV” to channel_down
