Michael,

I'm just adding the PMF newsgroup so this thread is recorded in the
right place.

Yes, some of the contributed technologies will allow you to do exactly
that. We use the phrase 'live-model' for this. Other contributions will
not allow this as they generate ui-technology specific code and have no
notion of the original model during runtime.

Depending on your specific environment and requirements you can pick the
most suitable approach.
