Hello Martin

(cc-ing dev mailing list as this answer might be of a common interest)

Roundcube skins define a number of named containers which can be used to
add custom elements from plugins. Seek the skin templates
for <roundcube:container ..> tags to locate them.

For the compose screen, there's the 'composeoptions' container which is
probably the one you want. The plugin API wiki describes how to add
elements to such containers:


Using JavaScript, this could look like this:

  var menu = $('<select>')...
  rcmail.add_element(menu, 'composeoptions');

You can also add elements to containers with PHP when the view template is

  $menu = new html_select(array('name' => 'xxx'));
  $menu->add(array(/* add options here */));
    html::span('composeoption', html::label(null, $menu->show() .

For further questions about Roundcube plugin development, please subscribe

development stuff.

Kind regards,
