Hi all,
I'm absolute beginner in applescript programming. I started new app for editing id3 tags. I found ID3Tag.framework (http://drewfamily.homemail.com.au/Cocoa_-_ID3Tag_framework.html) which is written in Objective C. I added this framework to my xcode project, but I don't know how to start using it. Can you give me short example how to start? Thanx

You can't to put it shortly. Applescript is for interfacing with already existing applications. If you want to make your own applications you need to learn a proper programming language such as Objective-C.

Incorrect.

AppleScript Studio is plenty capable of writing GUI-based applications. It can also call Objective-C classes directly. See Accessing Code From AppleScript Studio Scripts (http://developer.apple.com/documentation/AppleScript/Conceptual/StudioBuildingApps/chapter04/chapter_4_section_2.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/20001251-TPXREF175):

AppleScript Studio provides the call method command for calling methods of Objective-C objects in an AppleScript Studio application.
