    Hello, I am new to Cocoa, and was wondering is any one knows of a good tutorial for creating a simple full screen cocoa application. I am about 90% "Fluent" in applescript, and it would incorporate many applescript aspects. I found a tutorial Here but it is for Xcode 2, and once you get used to Xcode 3, it is hard to translate the instructions. (On a side note, I want this application to be able to startup, then give the user the option of going in to fullscreen mode, but I will work with almost anything) :)

    PS— If you know of any good cocoa tutorials for other things, (like running
    hidden applications (apps that don't show up in the dock, ect.) please let me know) But my main focus is the full screen aspect.

    Any and all help is appreciated. — Connor

    Well before you do anything you should learn Objective-C which is the language Cocoa is written in. Then you should read the massive amounts of documentation available at http://developer.apple.com/mac/ and that should give you a good head start.

    A free Objective-C book is available here.

    I'm almost positive Apple has a full screen app example up in their Cocoa source code area. Since Obj-C is in a different ballgame then Applescript, I would suggest the same ^.
