We have an internal custom (based on the print records app example) for printing a list of all records (project items) that are linked to a record in another table (projects). I’m trying to find a way to open that extension from an interface. In the table I added a button to the projects table that opens the extension with the project selected (through the
useRecordActionData hook) but that field is not a button when added to an interface.
So, I am wondering whether there are other ways to open an extension with dynamic input:

Interfaces now have a “Button” element which you can use similarly to the button field in your base. You should be able to add an element and Button will be the last on the list.

Thanks for the reply! Yes, I had seen those buttons in the interface but, unfortunately, they do not have the same action options. I’m specifically looking for the option to open a custom extension.
The best alternative that I could find in the options of an interface button is to open a URL from the record (so the URL could contain the record ID). However, there seems to be no way to pass additional data to an extension when opening it via a URL.

I would love to have it direct in the interface.
