Adding a Button to an existing Oracle Form

First off, I am not a developer. I'm looking for guidance on what is possible in Oracle Forms.

I'm looking to add a button to an existing Oracle Form. The purpose of this button is to use data being currently displayed on the form to trigger a search in an external web-based document management system.

The code attached to this button will need to do two things:

1) Somehow capture the string contents being currently displayed in one of the fields on the form
2) Use that string data to build a URL string (probably via VB)
3) "Launch" that created URL to access the document management system and perform the search (the results of the launch will pop up the document management system search results in a new browser window, not anywhere within the Oracle Form)

Is createing such a button and capturing the data needed to build the URL string something that can be done in Oracle Forms? How complicated would the process be for an Oracle Forms / VB developer?

Thanks for any advice anyone can provide on this one.

-Rob
