Sorry, meant slightly new to OSX development. I have been using the operating system for several years, but have never published a full app on it like I have for iOS.

Basically my problem is this: Windows treats everything like a window, where some of those windows belong to the same application. OSX treats everything as an application, where some of those applications have multiple windows.

When using APIs like the SendKeys[^] in Windows, you post messages to a specific window, and thus can post messages to multiple windows of different applications at the same time.

In OSX, that's not possible. Everything is done on the application level. You post messages through Quartz Event Services[^] to applications only. This is not idea for posting messages to two windows of the same application at the same time (two Word documents for instance if you wanted to copy a document). You can switch the active window, post a message, and switch back, but that is extremely noticeable to the user.

Quartz compositor must have a way of posting messages to individual fields on windows (whether or not the API is exposed) so if I could a) overwrite the existing system to expose this functionality or b) reverse engineer the quartz framework to check for hidden APIs. Either way is hard, and looking for suggestions.
