The following code sample reads the selected colors (red, green and blue) from the dialog, sets red=64, green=128 and blue=192 and clicks the OK button.

Code: Select all

Form form = Application.FindFormTitle("Color");
if (form == null)
    return 1;

Element red     = form.Element.FindChild(Role.Text, "Red:");
Element green   = form.Element.FindChild(Role.Text, "Green:");
Element blue    = form.Element.FindChild(Role.Text, "Blue:");

if( red == null || green == null || blue == null )
    Console.WriteLine("ERROR: red, green or blue edit box not found");
    return 1;

Console.WriteLine("Color Red={0} Green={1} Blue={2}", red.Value, green.Value, blue.Value);
red.Value   = "64";
green.Value = "128";
blue.Value  = "192";

Element okButton = form.Element.FindChild(Role.PushButton, "OK");
if (okButton != null)

return 0;
