AppleScript Question

Applescript + Xcode "applicationShouldTerminateAfterLastWindowClosed_(sender)" not working

I created a small script to control httpd/php/mysql and used XCode to create and link an interface to this script. Everything works ok. The problem is I'm trying to make the application window close after the red circle button is clicked, and is not happening. The app keeps running and only the window is closed.

I have tried using:

applicationShouldTerminateAfterLastWindowClosed_(sender)


The whole script is this:

script AppDelegate

end script

Answer

As @vadian said: Have a look if the File's Owner's delegate outlet is connected to App Delegate (your script) correctly:

File's Owner Outlet to App Delegate

BTW this is the default after creating a new CocoaApplescript-App. I just copied the handler

on applicationShouldTerminateAfterLastWindowClosed_(sender)
    return true
end applicationShouldTerminateAfterLastWindowClosed_

into the script and everything worked fine!

Have fun, Michael / Hamburg
