Specifying Access Keys
Using Access Keys
Dashboard allows you to "declare your intentions" when you:
Access files outside of your widget bundle
Use a WebKit or standard browser plug-in
Access network resources
Run a Java applet
Run a command-line utility
Use a widget plug-in
"Declaring your intentions" means that before your widget is run, you specify in your widget’s information property list file which resources you want to use. The keys and their meaning are listed in Table 17:
Access to files across the file system; limited by the user’s permissions.
Access to the file system, WebKit and standard browser plug-ins, Java applets, network resources, and command-line utilities.
Access to WebKit and standard browser plug-ins, such as QuickTime.
Access to Java applets.
Access to any resources that are not file-based, including those acquired through the network.
Access to command-line utilities using the widget script object.
Specifies a widget plug-in.
If you attempt to use any of these resources without first specifying them in your widget’s information property list file, your attempt fails.
