[RasterWeb]

The following hack should allow you to make AppleScript Applets (and other apps?) into faceless background applications. Meaning they won't show up in the Application Menu.

[Fig. 1: The SIZE resource]
Fig. 1: The SIZE resource.

Open your Applet in ResEdit, and locate the SIZE resource. (Fig. 1)




[Fig. 2: Only background]
Fig. 2: Only background

Open the SIZE resource and find the Only background option. Set it to 1. Save and Quit. You should now have a faceless background applet. (See Fig. 2)




[Fig. 3: Quit Script]
Fig. 3: Quit Script

To make your faceless background applet quit, you'll need another script like so. (See Fig. 3)
