Don't take credit from it! i guess we'll have to disagree again, david. :+) appleevents _require_ every application to implement them. it seems to me that another model could well have been used -- under which i could successfully drive _any_ and _all_ programs, regardless of whether they had "implemented" that ability or not. one-click follows this model, as does frontier scripting i believe... -bowerbird p.s. resedit _does_ throw up a "wanna save?" dialog if changes have been unsaved when resedit receives a "quit" apple event.
