Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the reply command to interact with another application via Apple events.

Parameters:

The string is the string to send as Apple event data.

The aeKeyword is the Apple event keyword.

Comments:

The reply command for inter-application communication is analogous to the return control structure for inter-handler communication.

When a program responds to an Apple event, it returns several different pieces of information. Each piece corresponds to an Apple event keyword. Use the reply with aeKeyword form of this command to specify which pieces you want to reply with.

The form

reply string

is equivalent to

reply string with keyword "----"

The form

reply error string

is equivalent to

reply string with keyword "errs"

For more information about Apple events, see Apple Computer's technical documentation, Inside Macintosh: Interapplication Communication, located at <http://developer.apple.com/techpubs/mac/IAC/IAC-2.html>.
