First off, I'm not too experienced in scripting. Here's what I need to do:
I'm running a program called HotLine Server (http://www.hotspringsinc.com
). It's a free program that creates a community for exchange of files and chat. It has a window with control buttons that include one to reload, which causes it to reread an agreement file that remote users see when they log on. I need to click that button daily.
I tried to use Applescript GUI scripting. To identify the button I tried using UIElementInspector and Prefab UI Browser. The problem is that the buttons don't show up as elements in the window using these tools. The Maximize, Minimize, and Close buttons show as elements, as does the header text, but not the command buttons.
I tried using killall -HUP HLserver19 from a command line but the application doesn't like it. When it comes back the UI isn't running and it refuses connections. Is there any hope?
BTW, this is on a G4 running OS 10.3.1.
