Popover vs New Window Card

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I was wondering if the new card window implementation (fm16)has any implication in choosing a popover or a card for displaying data.

Any advantage in using any of them?

 

Regards.

Card has the huge advantage of being essentially a new window -- that means it can display a completely different layout.

There's not much downside to cards -- it does require building a layout, and both the parent and card window can't be moved until the card is closed. That's about it.

The fact that it is based on its own layout means that it can have its own context, without having to have a working relationship to that context from the original context.

That is huge.  Popovers work in the original context only and if you want to display something else or allow data entry in another table you have to establish relationships to those other contexts.
