    Default Grid and the detail view

    I watched a demo that demonstrated a finished method of displaying the grid view and a hyperlink which would take you to a seperate view for the detailed view. How is this performed?

    Default RE: Grid and the detail view

    George check out the samples in the
    "web applications demo database"

    in particular look at

    Customer_wDetailView.a5wcmp

    Items of Note

    The page contains a Grid component called 'Customer_wDetailView'
    The Grid style has been set to 'Tabular' and the Grid is read-only.
    The style chosen for this Grid is 'IceCreamSundae'.
    The Search part is enabled, but is initially hidden.
    The Search part has been set to display a single 'keyword' field in which you can search. A keyword search is a special kind of search in which Alpha Five will search in all of the fields that you define in the Search part for a match.
    The component has a 'Detail View' part which is updateable. The Detail View part allows you to both edit and enter records.

    Things to Try

    Click the 'Search for Customers' heading. The search form is revealed. Click the heading a second time, and the search form is hidden. You can specify whether the initial state of the search form is hidden or shown when you check the 'Enable show/hide of Search part' property.
    Open the Search form and type 'phoe, smi' (without the quotes) and click the Search button. As you see, Alpha Five finds records with a lastname that includes the characters 'smi' and cities that include the characters 'phoe'.
    Click on the link field (in the Customer Id column) in any row of the Grid. The Detail View displays a detailed view of the selected records. Try making updates to the record, and then click the 'Save' button.
    Add a new record by clicking the 'New record' link in the Grid part.
    Return to Main Menu

    Default RE: Grid and the detail view

    Thanks Richard, I looked at the demo file but still did not see what I was trying to do. I am expecting to have the tabular view with my "Name" field settings as a hyperlink to the detail view of the record. Right now the detail section is at the bottom of the tabular view (same page). What I am wanting is for the user to be taken to a new page showing only their chosen record. Once there they can update or delete this record and upon submitting, be taken back to the tabular view page.

    Thanks for your enduring patience.

    George

    Perhaps an image will explain better than I can describe.

    Should I add this topic to the new Web Application Server forum?
