Chapter 12. AppleScript Basics > AppleScript Dictionaries

AppleScript Dictionaries

Scriptable applications include AppleScript dictionaries, which list and provide syntax information for valid AppleScript commands and classes. These dictionaries are a valuable reference for anyone who wants to write scripts.

An AppleScript dictionary is organized into suites. Each suite includes a number of related commands and classes. Commands are like verbs—they tell an application to do something. Classes are types of objects that a command can be performed on. For example, in TextEdit’s Standard Suite, close is a command that can be performed on an object such as window.
