Setting task information via AppleScript

Hi
has anybody successfully set (written) task info (Priorities, due date, resources...) for topics using AppleScript ?
If so, how?
The AppleScript dictionary does not seem to contain any hints to this (except that the "task" property of a topic is r/o, and so is the "topic" property of "task", but can both nevertheless be linked somehow?)

Thanks in advance

Hello Kai

I am not familiar with the AppleScript interface, but if the object model is similar to that used in Windows, then the Task object will have further properties that are read-write and allow values like priority to be read and written. The task property itself will be read-only, because a topic can only have one task object, and it is always present. I will try to find a description of the object model used in the AppleScript interface. You could also email developer.network@mindjet.com to ensure you have access to the resources there.

Hello again Kai

I have been advised that the sdef file, which is part of the application bundle at "Mindjet.app/Contents/Resources/MindManagerSuite.sdef", contains all the definitions of what Mindjet on the Mac desktop supports for AppleScript.

best regards
Nick
