Can I extend the workItem editor

Ian Hodges (271013) | asked Aug 01 '13, 10:54 a.m.

In a work item type I have a field defined which is a key in another information repository. What I would like to be able to do is extend the work item editor to have a tab that takes the key and retrieves information from the other repository and displays it in the tab.   Is it possible to extend the work item editor in this way?

Hi Ian, I am not too sure if I understand the scenario you have mentioned but I think you may want to look at ContributingAttributePresentation wiki page to have some thoughts along the line.
