Launch Screen Sharing

I wish to accomplish the following:

  1. Select a networked computer.
  2. Launch Screen Sharing (by any means).
  3. Enter user name in dialog box.

The order of 1 and 2 can be swapped. I can automate connecting to a network drive, but I can't automate Screen Sharing except by opening a folder, clicking on the volume name in the Finder window sidebar, and clicking the Share Screen… button. That method fails if the number of items in the sidebar changes.

I don't know how to do it from the selected network computer (maybe AppleScript can get that info, but I don't offhand know how).

However you can do this which might be useful to you:
