[MBS] Broadcast key stroke events
Date: 16.04.13 20:17 (Tue, 16 Apr 2013 14:17:27 -0500)
From: Koua Lo
I'm sure this has been asked many times over, but I can't seem to find a
way to attach carbon events to specific apps. I can capture events using
"CarbonMonitorEventsMBS" -- but how do I send these events to a specific
app? As an example, if I have TextEdit and Text Wrangler open and I start
typing in TextEdit, how would I go about sending the same key strokes to
the Text Wrangler application?

Thanks,

Koua

Thanks, I guess I'll have to think of something else.

You can only send key events to front application.
