Using all 3 Modes in the same form(new,edit,view)

Hey Guys, 

Im starting a new thread because my last thread was kinda confusing. 😛

 

So here is my detailed explanation: 

 

App Structure:

- Im loading all my CDS data into a local Collection.

- My gallery screen is filled with the local Collection items (but only shows Projekt No, order no and date)

- I got six other screens with forms which has my Local collection as datasource.

-  I have a save Button with a if  condition about connection status

  - connected : patch forms to CDS

  - !connceted: patch forms to offlineDataCollection 

This structure is already working 🙂

 

The Idea I want to implement

- I have a "+" button for a new item. That means my six forms has the mode "new" and all input fields in my forms are empty.

- I have a ">" button to edit a existing item (selected item from gallery). that means he switches to "edit" mode and fill the input fields in my forms with the data of the selected item.

 - For View mode there is a "View" button. I think its the same algorithm as the edit button has.

 

So my Question is what do I need to setup in my app ?

I have tried to use this guide as help. But I cant fill the forms :(.

My Edit mode is alaways like the New mode

MyGalleryMyGallery"Edit Mode" Screen1 - form1"Edit Mode" Screen1 - form1

@PivotMananger 

From what I understand your form's new and edit modes are showing exactly the same result.  I have a couple of suggestions:

 

#1 Make sure your gallery and your form have the same datasource in the Datasource property

 

your_datasource_name

 

#2 Change the Item property of your form to this code

 

Gallery1.Selected

 

#3 Make sure to define what mode the form should open. Change the OnSelect property of your nav buttons to this code.

 

Add:  NewForm(your_form_name);Navigate(other_screen_name,None);
Edit: EditForm(your_form_name);Navigate(other_screen_name,None);

Re: Using all 3 Modes in the same form(new,edit,view)

only 50% working (does not work with toggles

on start Im saving my 2 options from my option set to 2 local variables

 

    Set(
        OptionValuesJ;
        OptionValues.'153490000'
//True
    );;
    Set(
        OptionValuesN;
        OptionValues.'153490001'
//False
    )
