What garbage! Just create two applescripts to do the same thing for free! Here's the code:
Filename: "Hide Selected File Extensions"
Code:
tell application "Finder"
set the selection_list to selection
if (count of selection_list) < 1 then
return
else
repeat with the_item in selection_list
set the extension_state to get extension hidden of the_item
if the extension_state is not true then
set the extension hidden of the_item to true
end if
end repeat
end if
end tell

Filename: "Show Selected File Extensions"
Code:

tell application "Finder"
set the selection_list to selection
if (count of selection_list) < 1 then
return
else
repeat with the_item in selection_list
set the extension_state to get extension hidden of the_item
if the extension_state is true then
set the extension hidden of the_item to false
end if
end repeat
end if
end tell

Just put both scripts in your "~/Library/Scripts/Applications/Finder" folder and enable the script menu. Done.

The AppleScript method is an alternative approach, I'll grant you that, and I am already familiar with that approach because I was using AppleScript myself.

However: it is much much much slower. In my tests the AppleScript approach takes from 2 to 4 times as long as my C program. This is significant when you are working with large collections of files. Why would you want to suffer people with the suggestion? (Not to mention the mechanics of getting it up and running!)

Second, I don't want the script menu enabled, and even if I did I don't necessarily want to move my mouse across my screen (which can be large) to get to it. I like contextual menus for the behavioral, as well as functional properties.

Also, this program is part of a large collection of programs I call the "Utilities Bundle" which are all activated when you make a variable amount payment. You can view these programs at the following location:

And finally, you'll notice I didn't give it an obvious name like HideShowExtensionCM. That's because I have other plans for it. It's only version 1, but it's still a good utility as is.

Want a context menu? Create and Automator plug-in.

1. Open Automator.
2. Create a one-step workflow using the "Run Applescript" action with the previous code I posted.
3. Click "Save as plugin..." from the File menu and save as a Finder plug-in.
4. Done.

I think your ideas, from a programmatic viewpoint, are great, I really do. You seem to be a developer yourself. But, not everyone is, nor do they want to be or have time to be.

Automator is a wonder tool. But it, like AppleScript, is out of reach of some people who use a Mac because they don't have the time to construct Automator actions or workflows out of custom AppleScripts. It's not practical for them to do so.

Just like it isn't practical for me to starting farming and raising cattle because I want a "free" hamburger and salad with fries every now and then. :)
