Custom Dialogs (Forms)

During the execution of an automation script, custom dialogs can be used that allows the script to be more interactive. When used in conjunction with the custom command library, it is possible to extend the user interface for a variety of custom workflows.

Dialogs are constructed using the Forms object in the application automation scripting environment. A form may contain the following elements (but not limited to):
  • check box
  • radio button group
  • spin box
  • drop-down list (combo box)
  • line edit
A script can therefore behave differently depending on the decisions that you make during the execution of the application macro.
