This script will let the user input data, the data are then declared as variables. They are then formed together making a person's perfect email address. I have divided the code into sections. The full code is at the bottom of the page.

First, the welcoming:

display dialog "Welcome To Perfect Email"

Next, we declare variables for the text returned

set pet to text returned of (display dialog "Enter Pet Name" default answer "i.e Bailey" buttons {"OK"} default button 1)
set dono to text returned of (display dialog "Enter Last Two Digits of your Birth Year" default answer "i.e 98 (*1998)" buttons {"OK"} default button 1)
set prov to text returned of (display dialog " Email Service Provider" default answer "i.e @yahoo.com , @aol.com" buttons {"OK"} default button 1)

We set 3 varibles : pet, dono, and prov

prov = provider

dono = last two digits of birth year

pet = pet name

We set them to the text returned of a display dialog with text input. Then we displayed all the variables (pet, dono, prov) together.

display dialog pet & dono & prov
