I have a cocoa-applescript application whose GUI interface has 3 tabs.The identifiers for these 3 tabs are "item 1" "item 2" and "item 3" respectively.

Tab1 is the default tab with a form on it. Tab 2 displays the results. When user submits a form on tab1, I want the App to switch to Tab 2. How do I do this using applescript?

You don't provide enough information. AppleScript GUI Scripting requires the internal hierarchy of elements to be traversed. Can you give us partial source code? – Daniel Beck Jun 24 '11 at 10:03
