Further Notes:
The second parameter $popup is optional. It tells samie that the FormButton is going to raise a popup window.
The third parameter $CheckForMessageBox is optional. It tells samie that a message box will appear when this button is clicked. With this paramter set to 1 samie will resume the process to react to the message box.
This process must first be started with a call to VerifyMessageBox. The fourth parameter $formname is optional. It is used when there is more than one form on a page The fifth parameter $nowwait is optional. It is used when you don't want samie to call WaitForDocumentComplete or WaitForDocumentCompleteForPopup after you click the button.
