Mac: How to receive AppleEvents with creator IDs

Discussion in 'Python' started by Jean-Pierre Bergamin, Apr 9, 2004.

  1. Hello pythoniers

    I'm wondering if it's possible to receive AppleEvents with python that are
    addressed only by the creator ID (= application signature) which is a usual
    OSType four character code.

    The sending application has no support for sending events which use the
    process ID or the program name as an argument.


    Any help will be appreciated.


    Regards

    James

    You need to build an applet from your Python code
    (a utility for doing this is provided with MacPython).
    Then give the applet a unique creator code, and other
    applications will be able to address AppleEvents to
    it.
