wxPython Dropfile app for mac

Hi,
I have created a python app for macOsx but I cannot get it to process a file that is dropped on it in the argv when i use the py2app. Whenever it runs it only gets sys.argv[0] as the scriptname itself. Has anyone ever seen this before, or have any suggestions on how to get this to work?
Cheers

wx may be eating the args. They may be available in wxApp::argv in your OnInit() handler:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. class MyApp(wx.App):
  2.     def OnInit(self):
  3.         print self.argv
  4.         self.main = hetap_welcome.create(None)
  5.         self.main.Show()
  6.         self.SetTopWindow(self.main)
  7.         return True
  8.  
  9. def main():
  10.     application = MyApp(redirect=False)
  11.     application.MainLoop()
But I've never tried that.
