HTMLNoPost: Bypass HTML dialog UI

Tag: HTMLNoPost

The HTMLNoPost function turns off or on the UI of an HTML dialog.

Only available for command-line jobs and script.

Detailed Description

When an HTML input dialog is instantiated during an automation script run, it is created and displayed as if a human user was running the same function.

With HTMLNoPost, the values set in the dialog from the script are directly handed to the script for direct usage: it saves processing time and avoids potentially blocking a script with a modal dialog that does not properly closes when special Microsoft environments prevent safe HTML display (e.g. servers).


  • when an HTML dialog UI is bypassed, rules of field availability, value constructions and value validations embedded in the dialog are also short-circuited. To use with caution.

  • if registry entry NoPostHTMLAutomation is set to true, it overrides the value set by HTMLNoPost
