I'm using the custom work item editing tools and having some trouble.

I want to create a section that contains a table with columns. I want buttons that allow me to add/remove and change state of these custom line item entries. Attached is a rough pic of what I'm trying to do.

How can I do this? is it possible using the built in editor presentations and types attributes tools?

Thanks for help or pointer to a tutorial or guide on this.

as far as I can tell, this is not supported out of the box today. You would have to create an extension to the web and to the Eclipse client UI. I don't think you can possibly do that for the VS client.

understand. I was hoping I could some how use something like the "approvals" section and customize/specialize it, some way as a derivable widget/type.

Got any pointers to creating a web and eclipse/ui client extension?
