I tried to add a component to a data card and was not successfull. 

Do you know why this is not working?

 

Thanks!

Re: Insert component to a data card

Hello @jiwanovski ,

Data card is a so-called "container" control. Component is also a "container" control. The reason you cannot add a component to a data card is because that would create too many nesting levels of controls. 

Adding components to data cards is currently not supported.

@jiwanovski 

Can you explain a little more about what you tried and what you ran into?

In general, you need to Unlock the datacard (from the advanced properties) and then you can alter it how you like...including inserting other controls.

@dinusc - good call.  I totally missed the "component" in that message.  

@jiwanovski@dinusc  is correct, can't go there with components (yet).
