long time lurker here, i just can’t find documentation on this issue i’m having. I’ve probably just overlooked an obvious source.
How can i run a _(sender) handler as a sub-routine within the script? Every time i try to run it i get an error. I can figure out a work around, but I feel like there should be an easier way to accomplish this.
on doSomething_(sender) --tell block that does something end doSomething on doAnotherThing() doSomething() end doAnotherThing
This results in an error. I also tried replacing doSomething() with doSomething_() and doSomething_.
on doSomethingSender_(sender) doSomething() end doSomethingSender on doSomething() --tell block that does something end doSomething on doAnotherThing() doSomething() end doAnotherThing
This allows the handler to be connected to something in the interface and it allows me to run the doSomething handler as a sub-routine within the script itself.
I feel like this is a little overkill and i just don’t know the syntax to run a the “DoSomething_(sender)” within the script.
Also, i’ve been applescripting for a little while now and i’m just making the switch to ASOBjC & xcode. If there are any tips or tricks that you guys have i would greatly appreciate you sharing!
