GUI Automation Overview

   

[FinalBuilder Professional Edition]

 

The GUI Automation actions allow you to automate any Windows GUI application by performing simple operations such as clicking, sending keyboard input, dragging scrollbars, and waiting for dialogs and windows to appear.

The actions use an object model called the "GUI Scripting Model" to perform these actions. Complete documentation for the Scripting Model will be made available in a future version of FinalBuilder.
