Send event can't select some applications

Question asked by LucThomaere on Aug 23, 2017

Platform: Mac

OS: Sierra 10.12.6

Filemaker Adv


Can anyone tell me why some applications can't be selected as target application (with the open application event) in the dialog "Send Event"

After choosing such an application, target application stays "<unknown>"


For example: Calculator, TeamViewer, Notes, ...


UPDATE: it has to do with the Bundle Creator OS Type Code of the application. Strangely this is not used anymore. It was used to identify the creator of the app but now the bundle identifier has that function. Why is it still needed to send events from Filemaker to an app?
