Hi again !
Is it possible to add a custom button only in the add form ?
Example :
When I create a new entry, I want that user could generate a barcode when hits a button next to the barcode field. When he hits, on server side it loads last barcode from the datatbase and and generate the next barcode.

    Two options:

    1. Use the show and hide methods ( ) to add and remove the fields visually (but they will still be submitted).

    2. Use the add and clear methods ( ) to dynamically add and remove the field if you don't want it to be submitted.

    You'd use events such as `onInitEdit` to know when to perform this actions.

    A third option is to use a different Editor instance for each button.
