Quicksilver Large Type - Display Random Number

Is there a way to pass on a variable and then have another application take the data and use it.  I am trying to have a random number show up in with Quicksilver's large display.

Applescript:

set x to 5
set y to 57

random number from x to y

tell application "Quicksilver" to show large type of "random number from x to y"
end

It seems like I have seen that the OS could display large letters like Quicksilver does but maybe I am just imagining that.  That is separate question though.

Re: Quicksilver Large Type - Display Random Number

How about:

Applescript:

set x to 5
set y to 57

get random number from x to y

tell application "Quicksilver" to show large type of (result as string)
end

Re: Quicksilver Large Type - Display Random Number

Oh that is great it works just as I had hoped, thanks for the help!

Sorry I didn't reply sooner, I was just going through all my posts to make sure I hadn't missed a thank you, and sure enough I found your post.  Is there a way to have this forum automatically subscribe you to anything you post to? Just incase I forget to check "Subscribe to this topic".  I couldn't find anything under the forum settings but it seems like I had checked that already in this forum somewhere... guess not.

Applescript:

tell application "Quicksilver" to show large type "Thank You!"
end

Re: Quicksilver Large Type - Display Random Number

Hello

Never thought I could use quicksilver for that big_smile


I have done some googling to get that functionality, but somehow quicksilver slipped through my mind. Now I just have to add that sound of Canada Geese!

Best Regards

Mercurial vcs is a joy to use for scripting.
