Since it is possible to add buttons to the custom dialog, how do we hide or simply not display the default "OK" and "Cancel" buttons in a custom dialog runtime? The only buttons we want to appear are the ones that we create in the form designer.

Thanks Ricardo.

There appears to be a significant update to the code used for the Automate form designer, now called "FormDesigner.Net". If we own that product, is it possible to use forms code/XML generated with that tool in Automate Enterprise? If not, does HelpSystems plan to update the form designer code currently used in Automate?

Thanks,

-Eric

Hello Eric,

Unfortunately we do no do so out of the box.

Would it be possible post a sample of your code for further review? We can then add a feature request on your behalf for that as well.

I don't have a sample to provide for this one. Wish I did.

It seems odd to have a custom form designer in the product with the ability to add buttons but without the ability to remove the vestigial "OK" and "Cancel" buttons...

Thanks,

Hello Eric,

We do apologize for the inconvenience and made sure to add the enhancement request.

It appears that one can achieve the desired result using forms in PowerShell...and then integrate into an Automate task. A silver lining is that the dialogue controls to create forms in PowerShell are extremely similar to those exposed in Automate's native / OOB action. The PowerShell (Visual Studio Free Edition) is far more robust. ...but that's okay as long a they play nicely together ;-)

Thanks,

-Eric
