First, only been working with Glide for about a month and just loving it’s whole approach to no-code/PWA bliss… Keep it up!
Now… I’ve run into this situation a couple of times with fairly simple application designs:
- You have a primary data record (say, an “Article”)
- You have a secondary child record (say, a “Comment”) associated with the primary record via a RefID field (“ArticleID”)
- The “Article” worksheet/table has a one-to-many Relationship column to the “Comment” records that have matching RefID (“Comments_Rel”)
- On the Detail View for the “Article” record/object, you add an Inline-List component to the “Comments” in the given “Article” records “Comments_Rel”), AND you check the “Only show a few items” property on the Inline-List configuration.
Now… There are two ways to add a new Comment, but only one of them works:
a. Add a Form Button to the “Article” Detail View,
b. Have the Form write a new “Comment” record
c. “Surface” the “RefID” field from the parent “Article” record as a Column Field to map to the new record’s “Comment:ArticleID” field.
This does not work :
a. Click through the “Show All” link on the “Article” record’s “Comments” Inline-List header
b. On the Full-List View, enable “Add Item” functionality
c. In the “Add Item” Layout manager, there is no way of surfacing the Column Fields from the parent “Article” record. :trombone:
I’ve created a simple demo of this behavior here: https://article-comment-demo.glideapp.io/
Knowing zip about the inner-workings of Glide, is this something that could be easily added?
And if so, what’s the correct channel for submitting a feature-fill like this?
I have others… nothing earth shattering, but a few layout “tweak” configurations to add flexibility.
