Helping Hand: Auto-Click Button on ClearCase File Identical Dialog

When merging a lot of files in ClearCase, it's possible that you'll get the files are identical dialog box shown below. Once the dialog pops up, it just sits there waiting for your input. But in most cases, you are going to do the same thing, which is click on the "Yes" button. And clicking on that button a hundred time is a real chore. And it makes your automatic merge process very slow.

So what's where this helping hand AutoHotKey script comes into play. This script automatically clicks on the "Yes" button for you every time this file identical dialog pops up on your screen.

Because every screen is a little different, you'll have to modify the script slightly for your own needs. You'll need to specify the window position of the dialog that is centered on your screen. You can get the value for it by using the "AutoIt3 Window Spy" that is installed with AutoHotKey. Click on the file identical dialog and read the "Active Window Position" from the spy.

With this script running in the background, you'll never have to click that button again. Just make sure you exit the AutoHotKey program when you are done.
