Closing the dialog window while using Photoshop action?

I am coding with Python, and there was no problem because it was similar to JS.

I want to close the error dialog while using the doAction function.

ESC key was sent using win32api, but it does not work in the dialog. (It works in layers)

What function should I use?

=====================================================================
import win32gui
import win32con
import win32api

window= win32gui.FindWindow("Photoshop", None)
hwnd= win32gui.GetWindow(window, win32con.GW_CHILD)

win32api.PostMessage(hwnd, win32con.WM_KEYDOWN, 0x1B, 0) # 0x1B : ESC hexcode
win32api.PostMessage(hwnd, win32con.WM_KEYUP, 0x1B, 0)

Bonjour

jsx is not js and atn is different

You should code in JSX rather than any gear? :)

I run in visual studio code and use Photoshop python api.

Photoshop is stuck while using action so you can't communicate with Ps at same time. Better find the reason why the dialog pops up to avoid it.
