I try to answer but I am not so sure whether the level of the answer 
matches with your question.
In Mail.Mod is for example in NewTopicModel the following statement:
Objects.NewObj := topicList
This is the list which is then displayed.
Otherwise displaying dynamic lists is rather complicated.
If this does not help ask please more specific.
