I like having a hotkey to bring up the get info box for the current iTunes track so that if I'm using another app and a song comes up, I can quickly edit it. This works (though if it's not the best way, please let me know):
tell application "iTunes" activate reveal current track end tell tell application "System Events" tell process "iTunes" key code 34 using command down end tell end tell
I've assigned that a hotkey in BetterTouchTool and it's great.
I'd like to have a version of that script to edit the previous song... but changing "current track" to "previous track" causes a completely different result. iTunes goes back to play the previous track again even though I only told it to reveal it, and then I get an error saying applescript can't continue reveal.
tell application "iTunes" activate reveal (previous track) end tell
What's the easiest way to get iTunes to show the previous track in a playlist using Applescript?
