Hi Michael,

could it be possible to copy the original Backoffice template to my modules 
folder and add in the templatesection "list" something like 

var deleteUrl="]]><Method name="getServletPath"/><METHOD 

and editing the context menues for deleting, and implemeniting the method 
getDeleteUrl in my Backoffice class?
But i don't know the meaning of the url parameter iddelete. Could you explain 
a little?

Or maybe i just could let it as is and edit the tempaltesection "delete" in 
this template file?

But i would prefer the first way for compatibility with future releases of 

Thanks for your help
