Enable UI dialog table rows to be expanded dynamic for data entry

For tables used for collecting input, provide a setting that would allow a new row to be added after the last row has been used.

How will this idea be used?

This option would allow the collection of data in a table format without having to determine and fix a static size for the table.  This capability would need to be matched with the ability to loop through the table rows.  This looping may have been addressed with this enhancement request:

    Thank you for the clarification.  I will re-open this idea and discuss based on that request to be able to expand the input side of a table where the number of rows in the table could be dependent on the input from the partner.

    True, it exists, dynamically sizing based on the results of an API call.  Dynamic tables can only be defined if you have something to map it to (like the results of an API call) in order to obtain values to fill the table with. But in the use case where a table is being presented to the user to fill out a set of information, like a list of contacts, you must define a static table, with a fixed number of rows.  In this case, there is no data to pre-fill the table with; the number of rows which will be filled out by the user is unknown.  It's in that case it would be nice to be able to have the table grow dynamically.  Either by having the user press a button to add another row, or by having it add another row automatically when the last row is updated/filled out.

    There is a dynamic table capability available in PEM today that allows for tables to be created and managed based on the data that is returned from an API call.  For more details on creating static or dynamic tables, you can access:
