AppleScripting Cocoa tips and pointers

Uli Kusterer: “You read Apple’s excellent documentation, but need code to fill in some blanks? You can’t find your way in Apple’s sample code? Well, here’s a few spots I found really helpful...”

I’ve often wondered what Uli’s last name means. I’ve decided it means “one who kusters” — and I’ll leave it at that. Whatever it means “to kuster” I’ll leave as a mystery, though I like to imagine it involves mayhem, havoc, and flavored coffees.

Also see Sensible Defaults and Anticipating User Needs: “If the user does not select any files, why not offer them a list of changed files and ask them: ‘These 4 files have changed, did you perhaps want to upload them?’”
