See my (longer) explanation of why I needed to use both carbon events and
Waitnextevents at the same time in the other post.

Thank you very much for your demos.

Here you say "Carbon Events"...

... and here you speak of "waitnextevents"!

Both are quite different techniques. Does it mean you want to use the 
classic event loop together with Carbon Event handlers?

May be this is possible but I have no idea how. Why don't you switch 
to Carbon Events? It's so much easier than the classic approach; 
actually it is nearly as easy as FB event handling!

For "Carbon Events" see my demo in the DropBox that is based on 
chapter 17 of Bricknell's book.
