I am using Domino 6 and would like to add an action to the attachment properties box.  How can I add the option to print an attachment in the attachment properties box or in the right-click context menu?

    In order to customize the menu items you need to use C /c++ api's. It' sgoing to be complex as you might end up writing a DLL .

    Why don't you write a simpel action button, that will detach the attachment using OLE and print

    The problem is, I don't do programming, so I'm kind of lost in that situation.  I might have to refer this to the designer, unless you have an easy way to do it.
