Layout to Display Counties - Drill Down

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Q1: How would you code a FMP9 drill down UI for layouts that presents a state with the county boundary lines as level one, and county townships and cities as layout level two? The user would drill down from state layout to county layout to a township layout displaying the details. The user would click on the county; click on the township, and view the township detail.

Q2: Can FMP 9 present hierarchal lists to users on layouts for selecting items, and presenting related drill down information?

I think it's necessary to distinguish between two kinds of "hierarchy": one is the kind you get naturally as a result of putting data into separate related tables. The other kind is hierarchy among records in the same table.

For the first kind, the best method to "drill down" is probably a series of side-by-side portals on the layout (each selection populates the next-level portal).

For the second kind, I'd suggest you do a search for "hierarchical portal".
