By the way, thank you for the presentation on the plugins. It got me started writing them...
However, I am having a challenge that I can't seem to resolve.
I am trying to access a few of the controls on the Contacts View Screen and change their behavior.
For example, I am trying to change the Business Phone Number field to automatically call a number i.e. so the
business phone number field would look like:
So if you click on the number, it calls through the modem on a laptop.
Does anyone have a code sample on:
1- How to find the control.
2- How to change it's color and add a link to it so that when it is clicked that it performs a function.
3- Also, how can I find the text next to the business phone number and replace it wither with a link or with a button.
I've got all the coding on the calling side written. However, I just can't figure out how to change the control to do a function when clicked.
Please, any code or hints where to find a solution for this would be great.

Thanx. However, that does not resolve my issue. I thought the ACT! development team was going to be more involved in this board after watching the plugin video. I guess I was mistaken.

We do frequently check this board, however some questions are harder than others to answer, or in some cases our ACC community has better field responses to topics.
Check with the Durgan toolkit I know that tool extensively accesses ACT! views and controls at runtime.

Thank you for your response. Excuse my ignorance, what is the Durgan Toolkit? Is it part of the SDK?
ACC's tend to be primarily integrators and they do not, in general, develop software for ACT!. So it would be nice to have someone from the ACT! API post some new code into this forum so that developers can create better applications for ACT!. As of now, I still do not have an answer to my question and it has been on this forum over 2 weeks. A request like mine should only take a small sample of code.
It would be incredibly helpfull to have a qualified developer from ACT! just answer basic coding questions. I am not asking for full coding guidance, but for some simple snippets of code to speed up development. I think ACT! would benefit tremendously from this. Better code, better addon products! Wow, who'd thought!

I'm developing a plugin that scans for intelligence before a poster can submit a comment - do you think there's a market for that?
