Clickable button inside view form

Hi,

I have a form that by default is in view mode. However while the form is in view mode I want a button that is clickable so a user can go to a details screen. For example a user can select a planned service from a gallery, this will show a form in view mode with all the details with a button for the location that links to the location screen showing details particular to that location.

I added a button to the data card in my form but despite setting displaymode.edit onselect does not work until I change the form to displaymode.edit.  Displaymode for the button isn't inheriting its displaymode from the form so I'm not sure why its not working.

Is there a way to have a button that has displaymode.edit inside a form that is set to displaymode.view?

Hi @Naps ,

Other than putting the button "on top" of the form, unfortunately this is one of the annoying issues with View mode in Forms.

Unfortunately I came to the same conclusion. I don't understand why this is not possible (the option is even there in the menu...). Without clickable objects in a view form it is really hard to make an app that can drill down on data in a sensible way.

For now I've decided to set displaymode.edit.
