NSUserScriptTaskMBS class

Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
class Cocoa Tasks MBS MacExtras Plugin 16.2 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: A class to run a script.
These classes are intended to execute user-supplied scripts, and will execute them outside of the application's sandbox, if any. (They are *not* intended to execute scripts built into an application; for that, use NSTaskMBS, NSAppleScript classes, or AMWorkflow classes.) If the application is sandboxed, then the script must be in the "application scripts" folder, which you can get using ScriptFolder function. A sandboxed application may read from, but not write to, this folder.

If you simply need to execute scripts without regard to input or output, use NSUserScriptTaskMBS, which can execute any of the specific types. If you need specific control over the input to or output from the script, use one of the sub-classes, which have more detailed "execute" methods.
