AA Overlay to do checks before submitting

Question for the group. Is there a way to prevent a user from clicking the submit button unless we make sure that all the required fields are present. We do NOT have the source code to make changes in the application so this has to be some kind of AA overlay that checks for this.  Is this possible with Automation anywhere?

The only way I could see doing it would be to use PixieBrix. You could add another button to the left of ‘Update Modifier’ but would have to re-train your users to use that button instead. When they click on the new button, you could call automation to check all the form fields and confirm they are filled. If not, pop up an error dialog.

@J.Logan Thanks for the recommendation but looks like PixieBrix works only as a chrome extension which means its suitable only for web pages. Any recommendations for a desktop app?
