Need some pointers on creating a parent -> child table config

Need some pointers on creating a parent -> child table config

Have looked at some child table docs that look quite helpful. Can anyone offer a "steps to replicate" set of bullet points or similar

  • Not yet clear on placement of JS code in the example - just at the bottom of the page?
  • Is any additional config needed in CloudTables ?

Thanks very much
Mike

    Hi Mike,

    just at the bottom of the page?

    Yes.

    Is any additional config needed in CloudTables ?

    No.

    It is a bit of a workaround that example - we will add a GUI way to configure child tables in CloudTables in future, but at the moment, it needs that extra API code to work.

    Really helpful. If we make a payment to your support service does that count for cloudtables?

  • allanallan Posts: 61,098Questions: 1Answers: 9,962 Site admin

    That wasn't the intention with the support packages I'm afraid. They were meant for just DataTables and its extensions.

    Perhaps you can link to what you've got so far and I might be able to say where it is going wrong?

    Thanks,
    Allan

    Hi Allan!
    PMing you access details

    Hi Alan, details should be with you now. Look forward to your comments. Would be great to have child tables as a standard feature. Is datatables an option?

    Thanks - replied back by PM.

    Is datatables an option?

    Sure - CloudTables is just a configuration UI for DataTables, including database hosting, live updates, etc. If you had your own database and were happy writing the configuration code for DataTables / Editor, then that might be a better option for you. Child tables are pushing the boundaries for what CloudTables can currently do :)
