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.
