If your application  your are trying to automate has not been created for that, it will be a pain to do
you may consider to using a (test) tool like autoit where you should be able to do what you want.

if you want to do it with own c# code and the application is browser-based, you may look for code examples with the keywords 'c#' and 'scraper'. if it is pure winapi or mfc try to using spy from visual studio utilities in order to find out the id's of the dialogs and controls.

Without using testing frameworks you can use AutoIt
