Returns the four-character code for the Apple event class of the receiver’s command.
- macOS 10.0+
The Apple event code associated with the receiver’s command. This is the primary code used to identify the command in Apple events.
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
apple to obtain the event ID.
For example, commands in AppleScript’s Core suite, such as
create, have an event class code of
'core'. This code and the event ID code returned by
apple together specify the necessary information for identifying and dispatching an Apple event.
