Remove and Add Database Icons on Workspace with Program

I saw many postings in forums for code to remove database icons from the workspace. There is no way to completely remove the icons programmetically with out the user interaction, but I came up with the following code to do this. Only drawback to this code is it prompts user to confirm before removing each icon.

Button: Remove and Add database Icons
REM " To remove the first database Icon"
REM"Use AddDatabase, File opendatabase,WindowNext and closewindow to select the existing icon on workspace"
@PostedCommand([AddDatabase]; "Develop":"Dev\Testing\icontesting.nsf");
@PostedCommand([FileOpenDatabase]; "Develop":"Dev\Testing\icontesting.nsf");
@PostedCommand([WindowNext]) ;
REM" use file database Remove to remove the selected the icon. this will prompt user to confirm before removing the icon"
REM " To remove the second database Icon"
@PostedCommand([AddDatabase]; "Develop":"Dev\Testing\icontesting2.nsf");
@PostedCommand([FileOpenDatabase]; "Develop":"Dev\Testing\icontesting2.nsf");
REM " To add database Icons"
@PostedCommand([AddDatabase]; "Develop"::"Dev\Testing\icontesting.nsf");
@PostedCommand([AddDatabase]; "Develop":"Dev\Testing\icontesting2.nsf")
