    Default Update server in "Detailed View" without leaving the page

    I have asked this question before but have not seen any responses regarding a problem that I am having in "Detailed View" on a grid component and updating or saving data.

    I have combed the manuals and forums to fine a way of simply entering data while in a detailed view - then Save it without leaving that page and returning back to the original table summary view.

    Even though on [properties/customization/"Save"] button target page is set to <self>, it still goes back to the table which is a huge drag if you are entering a lot of data and just want to save changes in case you lose connection or just wish to update some calculations or toggle between the tabs.

    Is there a way to update the server without leaving this view?

    I feel as if I am missing something very simple but I have spent hours trying to figure this one out.

    Thanks, Mike

    Hi Mike

    You need to use Dialog Componenet and submit to redirect to the same page.

    Thanks.
    Many Thanks.

    Jack or anyone else - does this mean that I have to create the whole page using a dialog component or is there some coding I have to put into a dialog component? If the later, can I have a dialog and grid together?

    It sure seems like a lot of effort to simply say "submit" without leaving the current view - just can't understand why there would not be a simple process to do this?

    Yes. You need to create a page using a dialog component for the user to enter the data. You need to write the code to add/update/delete the table record. You can redirect the page back to the grid to view the record too.

    On the grid below, create a button for user to click to go to the Dialog page. From the Dialog Page, after user submit the record, redirect back to the Grid Page.

    I hope this help...
    Many Thanks.

    I turned in the fact that the detail closes - always - on submit, as a bug a year ago. The options in the Grid Properties indicate or imply the detail should stay open if you click Submit. If you select "Only show Detail on Request" then you get an option Close Detail on Submit. But the Detail closes whether you check that box or not. You might re-check that issue and, if it still closes on Submit, send in a bug report.
