applescript in OS 9 question
How do I tell an applescript to use the path of the current front window? (in OS9)

I'm trying to create an applescript that let's me create a new folder in the window I currently have open. when this new folder is created, I'd like the name to be a very specific date format. Any ideas?

I'm sorry my reply is about a month late, I haven't been checking the Classic Forum lately.

Anyway... Will this work for you?

tell application "Finder"

set window_list to get every window as list
set frontmost_window to item 1 of window_list

set the_date to current date
set _day to day of the_date
set _month to month of the_date
set _year to year of the_date
set folder_name to (_month & " " & _day & ", " & _year) as string

make new folder with properties {name:folder_name} at frontmost_window

end tell
