Carbon Apple quit Event troubles

Post: #1
I'm working on a new emulator that is carbonized, but I'm having some difficulty with the Apple Quit Event Handler...

Here's my code...

pascal short AEQuit(const AppleEvent* aev, AppleEvent* reply, SInt32 refCon);
pascal short AEQuit(const AppleEvent* aev, AppleEvent* reply, SInt32 refCon)
return noErr;

.......then later......

void NApplication::InstallAEHandlers()
short err;
AEEventHandlerUPP eventFunc;

/* eventFunc = NewAEEventHandlerUPP(AEQuit); */
err = AEInstallEventHandler(kCoreEventClass,kAEQuitApplication,eventFunc,0,false);

/* eventFunc = NewAEEventHandlerUPP(AEUnhandled); */
err = AEInstallEventHandler(kCoreEventClass,kAEOpenDocuments,eventFunc,0,false);
err = AEInstallEventHandler(kCoreEventClass,kAEPrintDocuments,eventFunc,0,false);
err = AEInstallEventHandler(kCoreEventClass,kAEOpenApplication,eventFunc,0,false);

The stuff commented it is what it's giving me a compiler error on. The compiler error is:

Error: function call 'NewAEEventHandlerUPP(pascal short (const AEDesc *, AEDesc *, long))' does not match 'NewAEEventHandlerUPP(pascal short (*)(const AEDesc *, AEDesc *, unsigned long))'
NApplication.cpp line 119 eventFunc = NewAEEventHandlerUPP(AEQuit);

and it says practically the same thing for the next one too.

Any thoughts?

This needs to return "pascal short *" (a pointer), not pascal short (a value).

I'd guess that it's actually that you need a UInt32 final parameter rather than an SInt32.

Let us know Smile

It turns out it was the UInt32 that fixed my problem...well not exactly. I'm not getting compiler errors on it anymore but when I run it in X it doesn't quit from the programs application menu!!! Any ideas why?
