I'm trying to find out if I can get iTunes to do something complex, but don't know what can be scripted.

Is there a way to find out what applescript commands an app will respond to?

Yes. Open up AppleScript Editor, and go to File -> Open Dictionary, and select the app you want to find out more about.

When you open it, you can browse through the available applescript commands for that application and find what you want.

    If your application doesn't show up in the Dictionary click the 'Browse' button down in the corner there and find the application on disk and open it. If it has Automater actions available they'll load in to your Dictionary then. – Ian C. Mar 28 '12 at 21:49
