This one is for TJ

Applescript:

on open thefolder
   repeat with thisItem in thefolder
       createicon(thefolder) of me
   end repeat
end open

on run
   tell application "Finder"
       display dialog ¬
           "This is a droplet. Please drop a folder of files or a folder of folders of files on me." with icon 1 buttons {"Ok"} default button 1
   end tell
end run

on createicon(thefolder)
   tell application "Finder"
       activate
       set theseFolderItems to every item in thefolder
       repeat with thisItem in theseFolderItems
           tell application "X-Commands"
               activate
               create thumbnail icon for thisItem -- using application "x-commands"
           end tell
       end repeat
   end tell
end createicon

I used  your code from "Creator_ShopR_1.1" and "x-commands" to composite this script but i get an "the application is not runing error" any ideas

to anyone else I am trying to generate a lil script to create icons for a folder of items dragged on to it
-thx big_smile

Re: This one is for TJ

Sorry it's taken me a bit to get back to you on this one!

I've downloaded David's spiffy X-commands and run some tests on your code...

It works like a champ here! Are you sure you have the curren version of X-commands? (0.9.5)

One thing to note: X-commands is actually an invisible background app, not a traditional "scripting addition". So, you'll need to actually launch it before testing your code. Post again with further details if you're still stuck.
