Hi there, and welcome to RunRev.
If you want to execute a piece of AppleScript code,
use the 'do' command. Example:
put "tell application" && quote & "Finder" && \
quote & return into tAppleScript
put "select the startup disk" & return after \
put "end tell" after tAppleScript
do tAppleScript as AppleScript
If you want to capture AppleEvents being sent to your
RunRev application, you'll need to handle the
'appleEvent' message. Example:
on appleEvent pClass, pID, pSender
answer "Received AppleEvent of class" && \
pEventClass && "and ID" && pEventType && \
"from" && pSender
pass appleEvent -- move it up the message chain
To learn more about AppleScript in general, visit the
There are a few entries in the use-revolution archive,
so you might want to search around there as well.
