Thanks for your reply. The web component isn’t really a web service (although it may be implemented using web services).

Here is a simple example to illustrate the kinds of things we want to do:

As part of filling in the form, users would need to provide an X and Y coordinate for a location of interest. Clicking on a “Find on Map” button on the form would open a new window which would display an in-house application: a mapping component that will allow users to view a map image, zoom in and out, pan around the map and then click on the map. The application would capture the coordinates of the click and then pass them back to the form.

Is this possible with the current release of PerfectForms? If not, can you give me a bit more of an idea of how the new functions you’ve mentioned might be used?

Thanks,

Ali
