      Can I generate a PDF from a "dialogued" layout

      Post

      I have a layout that allows via a short dialog (one pulldown menu with 5 options) to generate manually a PDF report.

      I would like to be able to create a script to use that dialogued layout in order to generate automatically based on certain parameters the PDF.

      Here is what I understand I will need to do this in the script:

      - Go to layout x

      - Set variables to simulate dialog entry. In the layout I use global variables to allow for the selection (how do I do that ?)

      - Enter Find Mode, Perform Find

      - Sort records

      - Save records as PDF (will this keep the original format of the layout ?)

      Kindly comment on my questions.
