Could someone explain me with a little example how create a button that creates a new custom field dynamically?

I'm working on a plugin and using add_meta_box, I need an input box (administration-side) and a button that when clicked will create a new input box, after saving the previous data (on a custom database).

  • Are you looking for something like this - web-design-talk.co.uk/examples/2/1 You want to add many values under one custom field just like that example ?
