Instance Property

appleEventClassCode

Returns the four-character code for the Apple event class of the receiver’s command.

Declaration

@property(readonly) FourCharCode appleEventClassCode;

Return Value

The Apple event code associated with the receiver’s command. This is the primary code used to identify the command in Apple events.

Discussion

In an Apple event that specifies a script command, two four character codes—the event class and event ID—together identify the command. You use this method to obtain the event class. You use appleEventCode to obtain the event ID.

For example, commands in AppleScript’s Core suite, such as clone, count, and create, have an event class code of 'core'. This code and the event ID code returned by appleEventCode together specify the necessary information for identifying and dispatching an Apple event.
