    Hi Peter,

    Is it a requirement to own the source version of DMX when creating addons?

    I need to make a filtered version of the collections control which only shows documents that contain certain words in the title or filename.

    We produce reports for around 90 seperate organisations. A report folder in our DMX instance can contain multiple versions of the same report with a different organisation highlighted in the charts, etc...

    I want my custom addon to show a user from a particular organisation only those files that contain that user's organisation name in the doc title or filename. (I'll get the organisation name from the user's profile using some sql, and the documents will be named appropriately with the organisation names during their creation)

    Is this achievable without the source version of DMX?

    Is there any formal documentation on the creation of addons? (I'm using DMX3)

    Hi Nick,

    There is no formal documentation of the DMX 3 API. The DMX 3 source version is full source so you'd be able to do anything with the module to suit your needs. Certainly what you want to do should not be too hard. You need to tune the ViewCollection.ascx.vb a little bit. Also you might want to check the other code-behind classes if you actually want to enforce security as well in accordance with your model.

    Contact me by email if you'd like to purchase the src version. Alternatively/additionally, I am available to work with you to make this customization.
