I thought it was about time that you could automate everything on your computers - not just what's in a browser window - using UBot Studio. So we've gone ahead and added Windows Automation for Standard, Pro, and Dev users.
This feature opens the doors for incredible new bots that can manipulate any software directly. With this update, you are now able to automate interaction with any software program. If you can click it with a mouse, or type into it with a keyboard, you should be able to build a bot that automates it.
And, for Professional and Developer users, we've added another way to take control of your online life - direct integration between UBot Studio and MySQL Databases.
MySQL is an open source SQL database platform that's extremely popular for web databases. This means that if you have a website, with customer data, for example, you could interact with the back-end of it directly using UBot Studio (instead of scraping the information from the front-end). If you have a list of customers, for example, on your web server, you can now pull them directly off the server in real-time, or update them in real-time, using UBot Studio.
I can't wait to see what you build using these new features. Here's how they work:
(PS - You'll notice that clicking these links goes to our new Wiki. It's not done yet, but we're also going to have that, as well as a new series of free, comprehensive UBot Studio tutorial videos, ready before Christmas.)
- Click Dialog Button: Clicks Cancel or Save on a "save as" or "open file" dialog.
- Click Mouse: Clicks a specified area within a windows using a wizard that grabs the parent class and location of the windows item.
- Close Window: Closes a window on your windows system using a wizard that grabs the parent class of the window.

- Connect to Database: Sets up the connection to the MySQL Database. It is required for use before the following commands. Use this command after you make sure your MySQL database is accepting external connections.
- Query: Sends a string to the database and should be used for MySQL commands such as CREATE TABLE.
- Query with Results: Sends a string to the MySQL database and returns a result. It should be used for MySQL commands like SELECT.
More exciting new features are on the way.
