Exit PreferencePane Plugin


 / Published in: Objective C
 

If you're writing a preference pane and you'd like to exit back to the main System Preferences view, just use this code.

  1. NSAppleScript *script = [[NSAppleScript alloc] initWithSource:@"tell application \"System Preferences\" to set show all to true"];
  2. [script executeAndReturnError:nil];

As a aside, you can also accomplish this by using the objective-c scripting bridge, but that requires linking to another framework as well as creating a .h file for the scripting definition library. Both of those make this solution more attractive, due to simplicity.
