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 Normally priced at $39.95, PreFab is offering an introductory price of $24.95 through April 19, 2003. Download the free 30-day trial version at

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.
