I want to enable/disable airplay mirroring with an script and I don't know how to find what commands are executed when Airplay is activated.

Any idea about how to do it or where to search?

Thank you!

You can do this with AppleScript. First create "EnableAirplay.scpt" and paste following content in it:

tell application "System Preferences"
    set current pane to pane ""
end tell

tell application "System Events"
    tell process "System Preferences"
        click pop up button 1 of window 1
        click menu item 2 of menu 1 of pop up button 1 of window 1
    end tell
end tell

tell application "System Preferences"
end tell

Then you can run this script with following command:

osascript EnableAirPlay.scpt

This will automate enabling AirPlay. For more detail you can refer to following references:
