1. Create a Frameset which is composed of elements you want to integrate in your HomePage.
2. Add a picture in the ressources with the same name than the Frameset.
3. Open the Form "LayoutEditorDlg"
3a. In the Field InitDefaultsItem add FIELD TYPE<x>:= "<Name of your Frameset>" <x> is a new number (+1) of the last declaration)
3b. In the field Type change the "Entry Conversion" Evenment to add: @Select(...;Type<x>);$Type)
3c. In the field tmpInitTempItems add the name of the frameset in the declaration of the list tmpKeyWordType like this: tmpKeyWordType:=...:"<The name you want to appear in the list"|"<name of the frameset>"...
3d.Add a line in the list of the field $Type:
"<The name you want appear inthe list>"|"<Name of the frameset>"
3e. Add a line in the array of description of the elements and give a description of your new function.
Now when you personalize your Home page you can choose your new option. For example, I use this tips to present the "Company News". This form use the new R5 Class NotesTimer to refresh automaticaly the titles and advert with Popup where there a new information.
