    I'm making a small application with Applescript, which gives the user a dialog box, and uses the selection made by the user.

    I need to use 3 buttons for the choices, since there are 3 possibilities that this Applescript is made for. But, I do need an option to open up another dialog box.
    Since Applescript Dialog boxes only allow for a maximum of 3 buttons, has anyone a suggestion on what to use.
    I do not want to use a list, or user input with text.

    Thank you.

    Kryten2 beat me to it.

    Alternativly you could use the ApplescriptObjC Language to design you're own xib interface file, using Interface Builder in the Xcode developer tools, but a good knowledge of xcode would be required.

    Thanks Kryten and Mark for your info.

    I checked Pashua out, but I think it's a bit complicated for a small AppleScript. As is using Xcode, even more :)

    Thanks again for your reply, and I try to check both options out if I find the time.
