A Form Filler: Automate Application Tasks & Dismiss Annoying Prompts

Advertisement

A Form Filler is an application for configuring multiple automated actions tied to the title of a specific window. It has been designed to automatically execute a selected command each time a pre-defined window appears on your screen. The command options include sending text, special keys and key combinations to an active window. For example, the program can fill passwords (for numerous applications, with the exception of browsers), close annoying windows, and perform other kinds of configurations. A Form Filler uses its own set of commands to execute user defined actions, for example, if you are tired of continuous prompts by an application, then select the prompt name from A Form Filler, type {ENTER} command, and turn on monitoring for the prompt window. This will automatically execute the Enter command to move over a prompt which may require clicking OK, each time the application is launched.

iTunes

For example, if you would like to avoid the above, annoying iTunes prompt, then open the main interface of the application, hit F2 or go to Actions –> Add. Once done, select a title for the action, followed by the prompt name from the drop down menu, and enter a respective command. Unfortunately, the command list cannot be acquired from the application, and you will have to see the list at the developer’s website to find out what each command does. Once you have specified all parameters, click OK.

Now, head back to the main interface and click On/OFF to enable or disable the action anytime.

You can also add programs to an ignore list from Actions –> Options. Furthermore, you can enable password protection and start A Form Filler with Windows startup from this section.

It is worth mentioning here that A Form Filler is quite a complicated application, and the user requires figuring out a lot of the details on their own. It will be more convenient for users if the developer made the action specific commands easier to handle, such as by providing a drop down menu with labels that can help apply the command combination. You can find out more about the implementation of different actions from the developer’s website. A Form Filler works on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

  • Every time I click to download it, Chrome’s kicking this error:

    Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): The connection was reset.

    Frustrating.

    All other links on the page seem to work just fine.
