The Link to Screen action has been enhanced significantly and can now be configured to open relations as well as the current row.
Each Link to Screen action has an independently configurable screen, so you can have different detail screens for the same row depending on where you come from. Or you can have a “show more” button which shows a different screen for the same row with more information. Read more in our documentation.
I have immediate use in an app I’m building for a client.
After reading the documentation, I believe the “this row” feature will be the most widely used aspect of this new functionality:
Linking to the current row
This initially may sound strange (why would you want to show the same row of the current item you are on?) but when you consider that the screen you link to can be configured independently of the first screen then it makes sense. In the app below the link to screen acts as a ‘read more’ function - enabling us to show more of the current row when the user taps into the next screen.
@Gerard_Fernandez These are the style options I get after clicking through on a link to screen action. What are you using for your data source on the link to screen action? Are you using a relation or one of the other options, like ‘this item’? Can you share some screenshots?
I see what you are saying now. Yes I get the same result when using a relation with the link to screen action. I’m guessing it’s assumed that if you have a multiple relation, you would want to see the multiple records in one of the list formats. If you change your relation column to a single relation by unchecking ‘multiple’, then the link to screen action will take you directly into the details layout.
