help with Notes and custom tabs

Hello all


I'm trying to make a custom tab that has the Notes feature on it. I basically want the Notes  UIand functionality on another tab (4 to be exact). I'm not entirely sure how this is to be done. Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any help.

Re: help with Notes and custom tabs

Are you using the SDK for this? The SDK is the only way to add custom tables.


You need to create the custom tables and then create your UI with the SDK


If you're not a programmer, you might use one of the add-ons that do this, like itTables

We have developed a plugin generator allowing developers to create custom table plug-ins using The Durkin Toolkit as your starting point. You can install our SDK and create custom projects from template in minutes. The Durkin Toolkit Software Developers Kit (SDK) is a bridge provided by Durkin Computing that enables other software developers to integrate their custom code into the ACT! and the Durkin Toolkit.


To get up and running in minutes follow these steps:

1) Download and install The Durkin Toolkit:

2) Download and install The Durkin Toolkit SDK:


Then follow these steps to create a custom ACT plugin project:1.   Open Visual Studio 2005/20082.   Go to the FILE menu and select NEW PROJECT

3.   In the “New Project” dialog select
“Durkin.Custom.SDKExamplesVB”    ( Visual basic )
“Durkin.Custom.SDKExamplesCs”    ( C Sharp )


I also attached the getting started document for your review.  If you need any more information please contact me directly using this sign-up page:

BTW the Durkin Toolkit SDK is FREE!
