Stop
Icon Number When to Use This Icon
0 When a major problem has arisen with the script Don t waste this icon on trivial problems, as doing so reduces the icon s effect when you genuinely need it For general dialog boxes where nothing unexpected or dangerous is happening The icon shown is the default icon for the application you re using For example, if your script makes Microsoft Word display a dialog box, the Word icon appears; if you re using Finder, the Finder icon appears When the user needs to pay extra attention to a decision for example, because the script is about to delete a file or folder

AppleScript: A Beginner s Guide
Figure 8-9
Add an icon to a dialog box to make its impact clearer
First, create an icon file using the Apple icon image format and the icns file extension Follow these guidelines:
Use either an icon editor such as the Icon Composer tool included in the Apple Developer Tools or the IconBuilder plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements, or Macromedia Fireworks Some other applications can also create Apple icon image files Make the file 512 pixels high by 512 pixels wide and 72 dpi resolution Use RGB color rather than CMYK color If the icon occupies only part of the square (as most icons do), apply alpha to make the empty parts see-through so that the dialog box s background can appear through them Now save your script as a script bundle and add the icon file to it Follow these steps:
1 In AppleScript Editor, press z-SHIFT-S or choose File | Save As to display the Save As
dialog box
2 In the File Format pop-up menu, choose Script Bundle
NOTE
You can also add custom icons to a script you save as an application bundle
3 Change the filename and folder as needed, and then click the Save button to save the
script bundle
4 Click the Bundle Contents button on the toolbar AppleScript Editor displays the
Bundle Contents drawer at the side of the window (usually on the right, unless AppleScript Editor is too near the right edge of your Mac s screen)
5 Open a Finder window to the folder that contains the icon file, and then drag it to the
Bundle Contents drawer (see Figure 8-10)
8:
Using Dialog Boxes to Get User Input
Figure 8-10 Drag your icon to the Bundle Contents drawer at the side of the AppleScript Editor window
Now that the icon file is in place, use the path to command to specify the icon s alias in the display dialog command, as in the last line of the statement here:
display dialog "This script will set up your Desktop for fast work" with title "Desktop Setup: Continue " buttons {"Yes", "No"} default button 1 cancel button 2 with icon file ((path to me) & "Contents:Resources:Acmeicns" as string)
The path to me part returns the path to the script itself, and the Contents:Resources: Acmeicns part specifies the file named Acmeicns in the Resources folder in the Contents folder of the script
