Execute APIs within dialogs

Currently a person's selection cannot execute an API call without exiting the dialog. We would like to add the ability to execute an API call within a dialog. This will allow us to cut down on the number of dialogs within an activity. This will help increase completion numbers.

    While this could be beneficial, we don't expect to be able to deliver on this enhancement in the medium to long term.

    Examples of use would be:

    1) carry out a postcode lookup that populates a dropdown/table for selection of the address to populate street, city, state etc.

    2) validate a field e.g. lookup up company number entered in a text box by API call to Companies House (UK government register of companies)
