Does OS X fire events when I select files using its Finder app?

rather well disguised programming question..... –  KevinDTimm Oct 4 '10 at 17:59
    
?? this is not a programming question. i simply want to know if the OS fires such events at all. file selections are not file system events, so the events must come directly from Finder. i'm wondering if Finder supports that. –  Paul Oct 4 '10 at 19:13

No.

However, you can add an entry to the context menu appearing for files selected in the Finder. See here. You can just use Automator, too.
