Enumeration

Timeout Constants

Specify a timeout value.

Declaration

enum : int {
    ...
};

Overview

Your application can use these constants when it calls the AEInteractWithUser function, or it can supply the specific amount of time (in ticks) that your handler is willing to wait for a response from the user. You can also use the constants with the AESend function.

Constants

kAEDefaultTimeout

The timeout value is determined by the Apple Event Manager. The default timeout value is about one minute.

kNoTimeOut

Your application is willing to wait indefinitely. Most commonly, you instead provide a timeout value (in ticks) that will provide a reasonable amount of time for the current operation.
