PreFab UI Browser 1.1 enhances Apple’s GUI Scripting
North Andover, MA — March 28, 2003 — PreFab Software, Inc. is pleased to
announce the release of UI Browser 1.1, an update to its utility to help
scripters write user interface scripts using Apple’s new “GUI Scripting”
technology for AppleScript in Mac OS X version 10.2.3 and higher.
A free trial of UI Browser 1.1 is available now at PreFab.com. Normally
priced at $39.95, PreFab is offering an introductory price of $24.95

PreFab UI Browser is the ultimate assistant for GUI Scripting. It helps
scripters explore, control and monitor the user interface of most Mac OS X
applications, navigating the interface hierarchy then generating useful
AppleScript statements with a single click.
UI Browser 1.1 adds a new timesaving feature that is destined to become a
favorite: hot keys to take a snapshot of the UI element currently under the
mouse — even if that application is in the background.
Recognized UI elements include application UI elements that conform to the
accessibility API; menu items in open application menus, including
contextual menus; menu items in open menu extras at the right end of the
menu bar; and items in the Dock.
UI Browser’s Preferences panel now provides options to set each of the new
hot keys to almost any key on the keyboard in combination with any standard
modifier keys; to bring UI Browser to the front when a hot key is pressed;
and to play a sound when a hot key is detected.
PreFab Software, Inc. has unrivaled experience in scripting the GUI,
shipping PreFab Player since 1994. For this Mac OS X product, PreFab joined
forces with well-known AppleScript and Cocoa guru Bill Cheeseman to bring
you a utility that makes GUI Scripting easy.
