Owning Palette: AppleEvent VIs

Requires: Base Development System (Mac OS X)

Sends the Apple event instructing the Finder on a machine to open applications or documents.

Full path of folder containing files is the location of the folder that contains the files for the Finder to open. The path must begin from the hard drive. All folders must be separated by a colon (:).
file names is an array containing the names of the files in the folder described by Full path of folder containing files. The Finder opens these files.
Zone containing Finder is the AppleTalk zone where the target Finder resides. If empty, this VI assumes that the zone is the same as that of the host Macintosh.
Server containing Finder is the name of the Macintosh where the target Finder resides. If empty, this VI assumes that the server is the host computer Finder.
send options indicates whether the target application can interact with the user and the length of the Apple event timeout. Many of the VIs that send an Apple event have a send options input.
Want reply determines whether the target application waits asynchronously for a response from the application until the VI receives a response or until a timeout occurs (TRUE), or sends the Apple event and does not wait for a reply (FALSE). The default is TRUE.
High priority determines whether the Apple event is added to the beginning of the target application event queue (TRUE) or the end (FALSE). The default is FALSE.
interaction mode indicates the level of user interaction of the target application.

0Never Interact—Do not interact with the user.
1Allow Interaction (default)—Interact with the user only if the target application needs information.
2Always Interact—Interact with the user even if the target application does not need information.
Server may come to foreground determines whether the application appears in the foreground if it requires user interaction. The default is TRUE, which automatically switches the application to the foreground. If FALSE, the application icon blinks in the menu bar to notify the user.
Don't try to reconnect determines whether the system should try to reconnect if it is disconnected. The default is FALSE, which attempts to reconnect.
transaction ID is a number associated with a sequence of Apple events. If you need to send multiple Apple events related to a single transaction, use the same number throughout the transaction. The default is 0.
timeout ticks indicates how long in ticks (1/60 of a second) LabVIEW waits for a reply before timing out if want reply is TRUE. Use a value of 0 if you do not want a timeout. The default is 600 ticks, or 10 seconds.
error string describes error information.
error, if negative, indicates a Mac OS X error. If positive, error indicates a LabVIEW error that occurred while sending the event. Refer to the Apple Event Error Codes for more information about specific Mac OS X errors.
