Triggering app menu commands

Recommended Posts

Similarly to the topic of using remote buttons to trigger keystrokes — I'd really like to be able to trigger an arbitrary menu command in an application.


When I started playing with Remote last night, the single best use case I thought of was to create buttons for debugging in Xcode. I'd love to have buttons to Step Over, Step In, Pause/Resume, Show/Hide Variables, etc.


Looks like I could do this by first using Xcode's key bindings editor to create keyboard shortcuts for these, then create AppleScripts to invoke those shortcuts and assign them to icons in the Remote. But it would be so nice to be able to just configure the icon with a menu item title.
