Possibility to make other UI-elements hidden

With ClearQuest 9.0.1.5 the new CQ-feature "DynamicForms" was implemented as API-functions. With this feature it is now possible to make String-fields, multiline-fields, references, referencelists etc. hidden and visible.

But on the UI there are more than those default fields, which are actually possible to handle with the mechanism of "DynamicForms". The designer is able to create own buttons, which are not related to a reference or a reference-list. Furthermore the designer has the possibility to group fields with a groupborder-element.

All those elements, which are available in the CQ-designer and which are no cq-fields are not possible to make hidden and visible with the new API-functions.

We expect, that also those elements can be handled with the API-functions for "DynamicForms".

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
