      Description

      In KEW we put an "Export" button on our inquiries that allow us to export the business object to XML. In the version of Rice that I'm looking at (0.9.4) I don't see any way to add custom buttons to inquiries but I think Ailish mentioned that they just added that feature (might be on the 0.9.4 kfs branch?). We need to check on that and figure out if that feature is available or if we need to work on it ourselves. Once we have the ability to add custom buttons, we can have the export button rendered automatically based on whether or not the BusinessObject has an exporter registered in it's data dictionary file.

            i don't get why you need the custom buttons feature for this. i would think you would just build this right into the inquiry framework when a custom exporter exists or some other prop is set on the inquiry dd object to show export option on inquiry. custom button is not for things like this where support is built into the framework - i.e. the work you did to add the prop to the bo dd entry. can you lmk what i'm missing?

            Yeah, not really sure what I was thinking here. Was still thinking of it from the perspective of export not being built into the KNS.

            Ah, just remembered, for standard export this can be built into the KNS but we wiil probably need to take advantage of the custom buttons feature in order to implement the "Export Hierarchy" feature on Document Type.

            Standard XML export is implemented on Inquiries now. The export button only shows up if the business object has an exporter that supports XML export. I had to re-implement how the close button was implemented a bit in order to get the 2 buttons to look good next to each other. It's still javascript-based with the SCRIPT and NOSCRIPT tags but it uses a input type=image instead of an href surrounding an img tag.

            I will create a separate issue for the export hierarchy function of Document Type.
