I am working on a project where I need to set the value of an Inbox column to a custom database item's value. I have been able to add a column to my Inbox view using the Domino designer, but I have not been able to figure out how to add a database field that I can set the value of the column to in the designer (all I get is a list of the existing fields). The field (item?) that I add needs to be accessible via the Notes C API, so I can set its value from an extension manager event, and then have that value display in the Inbox folder view (in the column).
I am new to Notes/Domino, so I appreaciate any help you can provide me with. Thanks!
