So far this grid has been easy to use and very powerful.
I have a relational db setup, so for example, contacts and organizations. The contact table has an organization_id field and I was able to very easily make that show as a combo-box displaying the organization.name field.
But now I want to go a step further. I have set the first entry for organization, id=0 and name = "Create New". So if the user selects this "fake" organization, I want to immediately generate an Add dialog so they can type in the fields for the new organization. Once they "save" on that dialog, the newly generated (auto-incremented by db) organization_id should be saved to that contact row.
I've been looking thru all of the conditional examples and I'm not really seeing a way to use the built-in functionality to achieve this – at least not without a whole lot of complexity with js and lots of back/forth callbacks. But I figured I would check to see if there was some relatively straight-forward way to do this before I started going in to expand the source of the dbgrid itself to implement this.
No perfect pre-built solution yet.
I am working on a demo for you that will need minimal work.
On +, it will open a fancy box (iframe page) and on close fancybox it will reload the entries.
Oh – Excellent.
*Definitely* getting my money's worth out of this product. Looking forward to the demo. I might actually be on schedule for this project 🙂
