tell application “iTunes”
reveal current track
activate
end tell

“tell application “iTunes” to set view of (browser window 1) to playlist (name of current playlist)”

It is all one line and should execute a tiny bit faster than the Daniel’s original script because of this (you will only notice it on really slow computers though).

I wasn’t aware until today that system preferences keyboard shortcuts would work when the iTunes-specific script menu is used. That’s cool!

“~/Library/iTunes/Scripts/Go To Music.scpt”

Besides that … you don’t needFastScripts to nail keyboard shortcut to it: in Mac OS X 10.6 you can add a shortcut via: System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Application Shortcuts (left sidebar) > [+] > Application: iTunes – Menu Title: “Go To Music” – Keyboard Shortcut: “⌥⌘M” (as example)

Sounds like a great idea, though. The infrastructure for FastScripts is designed in a way that would make something like that fairly easy. The hardest part would be designing and implementing the UI. I’m adding it to my feature “maybes” list.

I don’t have time to look into it right now but the syntax is something like this:

set view of (browser window 1) to Playlist of (current track)

I have written a number of iTunes scripts for use in iKey and have been looking at FastScripts but it doesn’t appear to have a feature I really need which is defining sets of hotkeys that work in all application except a list of applications (mostly just the Adobe CS apps and some games) I can define to be excluded. If I have just missed this feature then please correct me because I am kind of worried about the future of iKey with Snow Leopard.

but usually the situation is that i was browsing the iTunes Store and playing music/media there. and then i want to go back to my own local music library without taking my mits off the keyboard. so in that very common case, cmd-L doesn’t work cuz I’m not currently playing anything in my library.

this shortcut with FastScripts is a *really* nice addition to iTunes :)
