Ok just like the title asks for a IDE would i use OSA Script View or Text view for my code editor?
Neither of those are an IDE (Integrated Development Environment). Why not XCode?
I am going to use Xcode to build my own IDE, what i want to know is which of these components are best for displaying scripting languages.
OSAScriptView is specifically for writing AppleScript editors .
I would suggest studying some existing open source Cocoa-based editors (e.g. Smultron) to see how they do it.
 Technically OSAScriptView can be used to edit scripts written in any OSA language, but AppleScript is the only OSA-enabled language of any note so QED.
Thanks for the info it had thrown me of i am used to just programming without all of this visual stuff. But i need and want to push myself to build my own app and this is one thing i have always wanted to try my own ideas and integrate it into my own little dummy project.
I am having a nose though the Smultron source code, the app its self has a lot of the basic features i am wanting. Its a good starting point for a reference to what i am wanting to do.
