_BUTTON
  Hidden parameter _Button can be used to test whether the user chose OK or Cancel within a MULTIPRO box, but its usefulness probably does not extend to testing actions with other boxes. This is because there are cases where OK can return a 1, the same as cancel.

For example, suppose you want to prompt the end-user to pick some areas, so you write:
ASEL,R,P
*IF,_BUTTON,EQ,0,THEN
...
The problem with this technique is if the user is inclined to use the Apply button (or MMB), and then follow with OK to close the picking dialog, then _BUTTON will equal 1.

As a point of trivia, _BUTTON equals 2 after Apply is pressed, but this cannot be tested in an APDL macro, since the test will not be executed until the dialog is closed with OK, Cancel or Pick All. The Reset button does not appear to modify _BUTTON
