Cool!

But I only want to show one field and a comment box, So can we create another custom button called my Edit and then show a custom field+Comments box?

You'll need to write that as separate code, but yes you can do that.

Bear in mind that it will still do what "edit" does. You'll have those two fields on screen. Custom-field will be *changed* by your user, and the comment they put in *added* to the end of the comments list.

Oops, sorry, I forgot.

You could also put this into the workflow, without code. Create a transition from a status that loops back to the same status. Give it a transition screen. Place your customfield (and nothing else) on that transition screen. Then you'll get the same effects.

Well that was a productive and helpful comment.

No, customfields belong to issues, not comments.

You could move things around in the comments, including a customfield, but that would not stop the custom field being an issue item.

Thanks Nic.

Ok at least is it possible to update an existing field value(Status/Custom Field) when adding a comment?

Absolutely, although it's the other way around - you update the field value in an edit screen and you will be offered a comment box.
