Accessing Mac OS Calendar

Post by ElZitouni » Sat Jul 30, 2016 11:26 am

Hello,
I would like to access the information stored in the Calendar databases on my Mac that the Calendar app or other apps use (like BusyCal etc). Is that possible using live code? And if so, how?
Thanks,
Olli.

LC 8.1.0-dp3 already registers itself in the privacy tab of MacOS as an app that can be allowed to have access to Calendars.

The user has to allow that separately for each requesting app (only possible with administrator rights and NOT by script).

I don't know how to access this protected data via LiveCode.
It is certainly possible but, as far as I know, not (yet) implemented.
May be for a widget library? May be using FFI (Event Kit framework for iOS)?
shiftLock happens

Thank you for the reply -- Indeed, my question is more about how to access the private calendar data after receiving permission to do so.
