Resize window (aka. maximize) or the little green plus

So, you want a keyboard shortcut to resize the window, eh? Here's the Applescript to do it. I bound this to opt-cmd-M through Butler.

tell application "System Events"

if UI elements enabled then

set FrontApplication to (get name of every process whose frontmost is true) as string

tell process FrontApplication

click button 2 of window 1

--button 2 is the green "zoom" button for all applications

--window 1 is always the frontmost window.

end tell

else

tell application "System Preferences"

activate

set current pane to pane "com.apple.preference.universalaccess"

display dialog "UI element scripting is not enabled. Check 'Enable access for assistive devices'"

end tell

end if

end tell
