O2 Script: Creating a Git Clone using TortoiseGIT

After installing  TortoiseGIT ,  using PuttyGen to create the SSH key and adding the SSH Key to GitHub the final step in this series is to create GIT Clone locally (this is how we check out code using GIT)

public static API_GitHub gitClone(this API_GitHub gitHub)
            var url = "What is the git clone url?".askUser();
            var targetDir = "What is the target directory?".askUser();
            var privateKeyFile = "Where is the private Key?".askUser();
            gitHub.gitClone(url, targetDir, privateKeyFile);
            return gitHub;
        public static API_GitHub gitClone(this API_GitHub gitHub, string url, string targetDir, string privateKeyFile)
            if (targetDir.inValid())
                targetDir = "".tempDir();
            var guiAutomation = new API_GuiAutomation();

            if (guiAutomation.desktopWindow("Git clone").isNull())  // see if there is already an 'Git clone' window
                //Create a form window with a webbrowser that will open a local folder
                var windowName = "This is Git Clone target folder  (id:{0})".format(3.randomNumbers());
                var topPanel = O2Gui.open<Panel>(windowName,600,200 );
                var webBrowser = topPanel.add_WebBrowser_Control();
                // get the form and right click on it
                var window = guiAutomation.desktopWindow(windowName);
                // get the context menu and click on the 'Git Clone...' menu button
                var contextMenu =  guiAutomation.getContextMenu();
                contextMenu.menu("Git Clone...").mouse().click();
            // get the Git Clone window
            var gitClone = guiAutomation.desktopWindow("Git clone", 10);
            // get a reference to the textboxes we will need to populate
            var url_TextBox = gitClone.textBox("Url: ");
            var directory_TextBox = gitClone.textBox("Directory:");
            var puttyKey_TextBox = gitClone.textBoxes().id(1571);
            if (url.valid())
            if (privateKeyFile.valid() && privateKeyFile.fileExists())
            //directory_TextBox.set_Text(targetDir);   // no need to do this since it is added when we use the context menu
            // Click button
            return gitHub;
