    I am planning on making an app which can put files together to make a Dashboard Widget. Could I get away with Apple Script for this or would I need to try something more advanced like c++?

    Thanks, any help is apreciated.

    Should be able to do it in applescript. It may be a bit slow in spots but I don't see how you would need to use C to do the stuff to make a widget. If you are doing this in studio you may want to use call method to invoke the cocoa file routines and not rely on Finder to create files and folders and move things around. Or perhaps use Do Shell Script.
