Dynamic Table

This script simulates a dynamic table on a form.
You can add, delete or modify rows in the table

The code below needs 5 fields ( A1, B1, C1, D1, E1 ) on the form.
The field properties are : Text, Calculated

In addition create 5 fields ( HA, HB, HC, HD, HE ) with properties: Text,
Calculated, Always hidden
Create 3 Buttons on the form ( Add Row, Delete Row, Modify Row )

Create a scipt library and copy the SCRIPT LIBRARY code
Create 4 agents and copy the AGENT code.

Create a form ("Diaolog Box") with a layout region
Create 5 fields in the layout region ( HA, HB, HC, HD, HE ) with properties:
Text, Editable
