Hello all, I'm hoping one of you might be able to solve my little mystery! I've been using and modifying the Research Notes Starter solution, I find it very interesting dissecting these. I've sussed out most of the function but the $$Current_Type global variable baffles me, it's used as an auto-enter for the 'TYPE MATCH FIELD' in the 'Data' table which is then used as a match field to separate data into it's relevant portals; Notes, Media & Documents. Depending on which portal you create the record via 'TYPE MATCH FIELD' is populated with one of these 3 types directly from the $$Current_Type variable. But I can't see it in action anywhere, there are no script triggers on the portals, none of the scripts seem to contain $$Current_Type and nothing happens in the data viewer when I create new records ...yet it populates correctly each time. I'm clearly missing something but I don't know of any way of viewing pre-existing variables - so just how is $$Current_Type set?
Hello! I have re configuring the Research Notes Starter Solution - it works quite well for what I need. But I want to create a couple of extra tabs with portals, but I'm having trouble understanding the how the current IDs are being created (using a calculation) for the TYPE MATCH FIELD in the Data table for Notes, Documents and Media? Could anyone help me understand this? Should I just build it from scratch? I'm using Version 14. Thanks for your time.
