Python Arguments for Script Filter

Recommended Posts

I have a script filter that outputs a value. When passing this value into a downstream script filter, the argument is only available (via sys.argv) if the "Alfred filters results" box is unchecked. When checked sys.argv[1] throws an index out of bounds error. When not checked, the argument is available as expected.

That is the intended behaviour. Alfred doesn't pass the query to your Script Filter if you check Alfred filters results. That's why the with input as… and Run Behaviour controls are disabled.
Why exactly do you need the query in your script when Alfred is filtering the results? What are you trying to achieve?
