Can I script the auction house?

    Is there a command for the Enhanced Client to automatically search the auction house?

    I know you can make macros like this:
    script CreateWindow("TipoftheDayWindow", true)
    script MenuBarWindow. ToggleInventoryWindow()
    script _facetLbl = GetStringFromTid( UORadarGetFacetLabel( WindowData.PlayerLocation.facet ) )
    script SendChat( L"We are currently in the ".._facetLbl..L" facet." )
    See: http://uo2.stratics.com/technical-information/ec-command-scripts

    So is there a way to do that for the auction house with what your looking for already typed in and also make it automatically press the search button?

    I am asking because I like to log onto different shards and browse the auction house, but typing in the same things over and over is getting repetitive and time consuming. So I am wondering if I can make macros for 1 click or key press that will search for me? So I can just log on, press F1 or click a hotbar icon, and it automatically search the auction house for <item>, instead of having to log in, click myself, open the vendor search, click the entry area, type in what I want, press the search button, then backspace it and type in another item, and hit search again, etc etc etc for all 20 items I am looking for.
    I want to be able to just log on and press F1, F2, F3, F4, F5 etc to quickly check for what I want and then go to the next shard. Because trying to remember every item I am looking for on every shard and having to type it in for every shard is tiresome.

    Can the devs maybe add a *favorites* option? That lets you add in your favorite items and then just search once and it bring up all the items your looking for in the same search?

    Seriously? No matter how easy and convenient things become, I guess it's just never easy and convenient enough for some folks.

    Not to my knowledge, but you could:
    make a list of the things you check in an in game book or a notepad file
    Highlight the item, ctrl + c - copy
    Click in the vendor search ctrl + v - paste.
    btw, it's not an 'auction house' No auctions are held. It's a vendor search. It searches all the player vendors on player houses.
