Requests access for the entity type.
|Events||6.2||✅ Yes||❌ No||❌ No||❌ No||✅ Yes|
|Type||Which entity type you like to request: Event or Reminder.||"Event"|
Returns Wait, OK or error.
DescriptionRequests access for the entity type.
Users are able to grant or deny access to event and reminder data on a per-app basis. To request access to event and/or reminder data, call Events.requestAccessToEntityType. This will not block the app while the user is being asked to grant or deny access.
Until access has been granted for an entity type, the event store will not contain any calendars for that entity type, and any attempt to save will fail. The user will only be prompted the first time access is requested; any subsequent instantiations of EKEventStore will use the existing permissions.
You can later check status with Events.AuthorizationStatusForEntityType.
The function may return OK if access is granted directly or Wait if user will be asked.
Please note, that on macOS Sonoma, you may only be allowed to add entries to the calendars unless the user grants full permissions in system preferences.
Request access for reminder:
- Version 13.3
- Fixed Events.RequestAccessToEntityType to return "Wait" not as error. And to wait up to 10 seconds for dialog response.
This function checks for a license.
