Workflow selection to clipboard (n00b)-- variable passing/information flow

Recommended Posts

So, I have a very simple ruby script filter that parses (`readlines`) a text file and `puts`  the required workflow XML back to Alfred.


How now, when one makes a selection, from that dropdown listing can I copy that value/information to the clipboard or otherwise pass it on to another script. Simply linking to the clipboard action does not seem to work. It does, however, if I `puts` a value to the clipboard action, but then I do not get the user dropdown.

Each item in the dropdown starts with something like <item uid='myuid' arg='myarg' valid='yes'>. That myarg (that can be what you want, naturally), is what will be passed further on when you select the item from the dropdown.
