creating new scripts

Hi, I'm newbie. I'm trying to figure out how I can create a script using Shift G command and the directory path of the file has a register ? symbol.

Please advise how I can make my script work.

Thanks a lot!

    So there are two things of note for the solution.

    First, you can use some modifiers with TypeCommand like Shift, Control, and Option. That will get your Cmd-Shift-G. You could also do that with TypeText command, which leads to the second point.

    TypeText allows you to put modifier keys up and down, so to produce a ? symbol we need to hold down Option and hit the letter "r". That will generate the symbol on the remote machine. The option-r isn't anything special that Eggplant does that's just how you type a ? symbol on Mac OS X.

    So the finished example would look like this.
    TypeCommand "Shift G"
    TypeText "~/My Folder"
    TypeText OptionDown, "r", OptionUp
    TypeText Enter

    For further information, including a list of special keys you can use, please see the "Keyboard Commands" section of the Eggplant Reference manual. (Pg. 114)
