Is there any way to dynamicly create designelements in Notes as fields, buttons, etc. - like in a webpage?
In my mind one of the mayor drawbacks of most development tools is that you are restricted by what design elements you put in a form (when in Notes) - in my particular case i have a dialog box containing a search form, where the users can search for documents in some archive databases.
Right now the resulting list is shown in a RichTextItem, containing a doclink and a brief description. I want to add to this list the possibility to delete documents. If its a button, a link or a checkbox doesn't matter. What matter is that i can insert an unknown number of fields, so have do i do that?
I have played with the idea to create a XML document, where i can define the fields / buttons and then import it to Notes, but im not sure how to do this...
Any help or ideas on how to make Notes more dynamic is most welcome.
