How do I create a group of buttons on the fly

Not using Outlook 2003, let's ask some questions first. Are there a finite
number of buttons and do you already know what they are? If so, then create
them all and just show or hide them on your preOpenCard script. This way you
don't have to create buttons and add scripts on the fly.

If you're having to manage their location on resize, then you'll need to
write you own resizeStack handler. There are quite a few good thread on this
already. If the order of the buttons are to change, then keep them all in a
single group and set the loc of the group in the resizeHandler, so you don't
have to worry about which button goes where.
