Receiving appleevents

Hi all,

Im using RB 3.2 for an application that is apple-scriptable.

but I am having some problems.

Basically, if the application is closed, and appleevents are fired at it, it
opens itself correctly, but totally ignores the appleevents themselves.

This doesn't seem to be normal behaviour, every other scriptable, non-RB
application Ive tried seems to remember the appleevents and run them on
opening.

Is this a known issue? is there a good work-around?

Thanks for your help.

Yours cheerfully,

Andrew Bush

Hmmm, I'm not having that problem... which kind of AppleEvents are you
using? If you're using odoc, remember that this is not handled by
HandleAppleEvent, but rather by OpenDocument of the App class.

Cheers,
