Questions about and code samples for automation process code snippets within Select.

I am considering the use of Automation to change the Order Status to Closed when our Fees have been disbursed and the Orders Status is "Inprocess" or "Hold".
As I see it I could use native automation conditions to check the order status and would have to use a code snippet to identify if all Fees (i.e. Revenue) have been disbursed and then a second code snippet to change the status.
Is this something that automation can/should handle and do you happen to know of any examples out there that may get me headed in the right direction?

This is possible with Automation Code Snippets. However, the level of programming capability to interact with Select on a API interface level is challenging in this environment. Working with an a order and changing order properties is relatively simple (such as checking order status or changing status properties). In order to determine the posted/etc. status of transactions would use the ITransactionsManager and is a moderate to advanced topic.
Also (and perhaps most important?), developing complex code in an Automation Snippet is very time consuming due to the lack of a developer's environment. This is beyond the original design for this area.
