Hi, I’m really Stuck , any suggestions would be most appreciated.
I need to replicate a particular behavior of the PopOver that is inside a Portal.
When inserting or editing portal Rows via popOvers, the data updates in the portal before “committing”.
Trying to replicate this behavior according to this rules:
-. Using Transactions and Data modeling.
.- Data not updated at the portal before committing (refreshing portal by trigger or exiting a field doesn't work).
.- Data not updated at the portal as inserts or edits are been made (same as above).
.- Inserts or Edits are made outside the portal in the same layout (no modals, Using SlideControl).
.- Not using PopOvers inside portal.
.- Portal is not accesible by user it only shows the list of items been inserted or updated.
I have tried different approaches but no solution yet, trying to replicate behavior has been very frustrating.
Filtered Single Line portals and Magic Key with different Techniques and different relationship approaches, I have not tried Globals via Scripts which I presume could be a solution but don’t have much to start with!!!.
For the record:
A few months ago I started implementing “Selector Conector and Transactions”, I´m not so sure I have correctly implemented this.
I have prepared a Sample file (is not the actual solution) with very simple use of Transactions and Data Modeling, it shows different approaches I have tried. Used some technics learned here at this forum which have been very helpful.
Approaches number 1 and number 2 from the Sample file are not the preferred, but merely show the behavior I´m trying to replicate.
A script at start creates small window that shows records are been created in child's table even tough it won’t update the portal before commiting when using technics 3 and 4 from the Sample file.
Hope my explanation makes any sense.
Thanks in advance, and cheers to all
PS.: Check the green Framed Portal at the right hand side of the layout´s Sample file for a cool technique that I designed, it uses “Hide Object when”, and a combination of formatting the Button and portal row (Padding), which makes the illusion of an X circle appearing on the right side when Hovering portal rows, mostly used for deleting. Hope any one has a use for it.
in my solution my customer has a list of all its projects in a portal.
the portal row is a popover button where it displays limited related information to that project to the customer.
i want to create a button in the popover which would fire an email requesting more information about the project.
However i run into a problem , i tried to set varaible of the customer and project howeever of the project it does not capture the correct one just any / the first project created.
How would i get my button to capture the correct project related in that poover button?
