[Vtigercrm-developers] creating a test module/tab - best approach..

Hi Tony/David.

I've taken a look at the pdf docs for the vtlib. I'm trying to wrap my head
around exactly what the payslip app does.

I see that it performs some db functions, as well as connecting into the
vTiger app... But I can't see where the UI stuff occurs. I'm assuming this
is in the Smarty Template stuff, that's not provided.

If I simply wanted to create a "copy" of an existing module/tab, that I
could then modify... is there an example somewhere that I can play around

Basically, I'm looking to create a test module, that will allow a user to
select an account/contact that the user will work with. The current version
of vTiger doesn't appear to allow this kind of functionality.

Hi Bruce,
You can use the 5.0.4 version for now if you intend to develop
and use the extension in the near future.

The vtlib download works for 5.0.4.  Please check the blog for
more information and download links.
