Multi level form with 2 children - is this possible?

koniahinkoniahin Posts: 182Questions: 38Answers: 6

We have a nice multi-level form,.

Load the parent table
Select a parent row
Child rows display if any exist
Can add new children

Taking this one step further, is it possible to set it up so that when you click on the parent, it displays 2 independent children with similar Add/Update/Delete functionality?

Example:

Parents are musicians
Child #1 - instruments the parent is skilled to play
Child #2 - performances with details of every performance or maybe a bibliography list, just something.

    As is two datatable fields in your form, both of which have nested editing abilities?

    Yes indeed that is possible - you can have as many as you want. They are independent fields, so you'd just set each up as you would for a single editable datatable - just make sure your variable names don't overlap :)

    By overlap, usually I specify the field with the table like:

    parent.id
    parent.roworder
    parent.title

    child1.id,
    child1.roworder
    child1.title

    child2.id
    child2.roworder
    child2.title

    That should be fine?
