        Hi, I'm new to using AppleScript Objective C in Xcode, but happy with basic pure AppleScript... so this is probably something obvious, any help greatly appreciated!

         

        I'm currently trying to write a simple GUI Applescript App in Xcode to send commands to a networked Mac.

        I have the script working in Script Editor but it's not behaving as expected in Xcode.

         

        The following works in both Script Editor and Xcode:

         

        using terms from application "Spotify"
          try
          tell application "Spotify" of machine "eppc://user:password@host"
          playpause
          end tell
          on error errM number errN
          display dialog (errM & space & errN)
          end try
        end using terms from

         

        The below version works in Script Editor, but in Xcode returns the dialog 'Can’t find remote machine. -915'.

        I need to use the variable / 'property' in order to take user input for the logon details.

         

         

        set remMachine to "eppc://user:password@host"
        using terms from application "Spotify"
          try
          tell application "Spotify" of machine remMachine
          playpause
          end tell
          on error errM number errN
          display dialog (errM & space & errN)
          end try
        end using terms from

         

         

        Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks!
