Activate a button box in JSL - Simulate button press

Is it possible to activate a button box that was created by a previously running script? Essentially, I'm looking to simulate a button press.

Example:

[Script A creates object buttonbox(1)]

[Script B contains a line similar to one below, to simulate pressing the buttonbox]

buttonbox(1) << run script;

Then, script B would be run any time after script A and would call the script from buttonbox(1).

The Click function allows you to do that.

names default to here(1);

new window("xxx",rr=button box("test",show("pressed")));

rr<<click;

Hi Jim,

Is this aproach can also work for the error windows generated e.g while formula errors. in the attached picture i want to click on the "Ignore Errors"button using JSL?

This error window is a modal window, which means that all processing will stop except for the window action, until the window is closed.  Therefore, you will not be able to issue a "Click" function
