Applescript: Search for folders and setting path to folder
I am working on a script to allow the user to pick a folder. Once picked, I wanted a search of the subfolders to see if a folder exists. In my case it will be named "Proxy".
Once I have found this folder, I would like to basically "Set Proxyfolder to path to "Proxy" folder. This way, I can perform an action to this particular folder.
Also, in many cases there may be more than one subfolder by the same name of "Proxy." How would I know which folder I would be dealing with? So far, my code is like this:
property new_foldername : "PROXY"
set this_folder to (choose folder with prompt "Select the main shoot folder")
tell application "Finder"
if (exists folder new_foldername of entire contents of this_folder) then
set Proxypath to (POSIX path of new_foldername)
display dialog "Proxy folder is not found"
