Auto click windows dialog
« on: March 13, 2006, 09:04:31 AM »
Hello everybody

I am looking for a freeware which can automatically kill/close/push a button on a windows dialog...like a shareware program DialogDevil's Auto-Click feature ?

I would appreciate your help.

Thanks
zeemar

I am looking for a freeware which can automatically kill/close/push a button on a windows dialog

I use the last free version of Press that Freakin' Button (PTFB)
http://www.priceless...TOP.php#ButtonPusher
Later versions have turned into a shareware macro program.

There's also (not tried by me) ClickOff, also freeware
http://www.johannesh...com/en/clickoff.html

I believe you can also do this with the freeware macro programs AutoHotKey (very popular on DonationCoder), AutoIt, and PowerPro.  All can do lots of other things as well, but if automatic button-pressing is all you want, PTFB is effective and easy to use.

RtvReco is designed to automate many aspects of Windows, by pressing buttons in annoying dialog boxes, choosing menu items, maximising, and minimising windows for you.

I use ClickOff all of the time... I almost *LOVE* this little program :-*

Oops, sorry, thanks for the correction...

There's a grateful comment on ClickOff on TinyApps Blog.

I myself bought a license for PTFB Pro, when it was featured on Bits du Jour.  I notice that Johannes Huebner, author of ClickOff, says his users report that ClickOff doesn't work very well with Vista.  I suspect that that isn't ClickOff, it's Vista.  PTFB Pro's help file contains an entire section on Vista, including the fact that PTFB Pro can't currently automatically press the "Elevation Prompt" because Microsoft deliberately made that nearly impossible to do for "security reasons."  It goes on to suggest various ways of coping with the situation, saying, in part:

Quote

1) Turn off UAC (User Account Control) ... NOT recommended.

2) Tweak UAC settings

3) Have a beer, and try to put up with it. However, be aware that this solution could lead to a long-term dependency on alcohol. It wouldn't be the first time that Windows has driven someone to drink.

Steps for an easier life in Vista:
The following suggestions ...



Note No. 3    :)

I have licenses for PromptPal and ColorCache from the same company, and also bookmarked their PTFB, but I could not accept their asking price - because of the free ClickOff! And now you tell me that PTFB also has been offered at Bits du Jour - and I didn't see it !!!   even though I get their email every week!   :(

I have given up on beer, so I may be stuck with paragraphs #1 and #2 when I finally take my new Vista into use. I assume you are not running Vista, or are you accumulating an addiction to beer?

It was back in May, longer ago than I thought.  I posted it in the Found Deals and Discounts section, here

At the moment, not running Vista  :)  Long may that continue...

As an afterthought, the last free version of PTFB doesn't have an installer.  You just unzip it into a folder and go.  It's a pity that the payware version, and ClickOff, both have to have installers.  It's true that payware-PTFB does more, so maybe it needs an installer, but an up-to-date, portable, no-install button pusher would be nice.
