Thinking about script called ui(s) and writing things like colour
dialogs and other things where the user may describe or define
particualar things -- like resuible colours from their livery, is it
possible for script to call for the creation of widgtes in memeory for
thier ui form(s)?

For example in the way in which the Script menu itself creates
sub-menus on the fly defined by the subdirectory structure of the
Scritps directory.

I have for css2 colour names made menus/submenus (with a bitmap
representation created on the fly and included inthe submenuitem)
loadible  at form initialisation in other development environemnts,
which can allow for user defined/saved colours to be reloaded as well
, and have looked at doing it for the colour gamuts that LateX uses,
colors, dvipsnames, svgnames, x11names, and those listed spaces
defined in chroma by Dr. Uwe Kern.

Scriptable creations of ui forms buttons, menu /submenu items/  panel
pieces etc would all be useful, perhaps anything available to the ui
