    hey guys I've been sitting here for 6678 hours trying to make my app, how do i make an action that allows me to press a button so it performs an applescript,
    on myButtonHandler_(sender)
    doesn't work and I've tried ALL combinations.

    More information would be helpful - that looks like it might be an AppleScriptObJC action handler, so if it is connected to a button, the statements in the handler will be run when the button is pressed.

    Sorry :( but could you try to explain it a bit better, english is not my main language its a applescript cocoa. The problem is i can't connect it to the button.

    on myButtonHandler_(sender)
    my script

    Im not even a bad developer (okay some people would say otherwise) or a newbie of any sort, i just can't figure out why this doesn't work :( and if i find out how to do this can you tell how to have multiple buttons run different scripts?

    Here you go.

    Send a shell command through myButtonHandler_
    osascript -e <your apple script code here>
    <your apple script code here> is your apple script code (ex: display dialog ...)
